The Temple Emunah Library features a collection of adult and children’s Judaic books. The library has an especially large collection of Holocaust books. Many of the older books can be found in the Rubenstein Wing in the next room down the hall. 

The library has a computer, generously donated by the Temple Emunah Sisterhood, that students and visitors are able to use to do research and to access the online catalog. You are also welcome to bring your own laptop and use the library’s WIFI connection.

Harvey and Joan Bines and Family have generously endowed the Temple Emunah Library in memory of Lillian and Carl Bines. 

Borrowing Books
Books are borrowed for 4 weeks. They can be returned by placing them in the Return Box by the door of the library.

On Shabbat, books may be borrowed by placing the book card(s) in the envelope with your name on it, found in alphabetical order in the box on the desk. Place your envelope in the box labelled Shabbat Loans. After Shabbat, the book(s) will be checked out to you on our computer.
