The Temple Emunah library features a great collection of adult and children's books, DVDs, CDs and tapes. We have a computer that visitors can use to do their own research, with a printer available as well. This computer, generously donated by the Sisterhood, can also be used to search for books in our collection. Or you can bring your own laptop and use our wireless connection.
The library is always available during the week. Someone in the office will unlock the door for you, if it is locked, and if no one is there a number of other people can let you in. Officially, we are open during Hebrew school hours, and on Shabbat from noon to 1:30 pm. On Shabbat, you can borrow books by placing the book card in a preprinted envelope with your name on it, and leaving it to be entered into the computer later.
Recently, the Temple Emunah Library was endowed in memory of Lillian and Carl Bines by the Bines Family.
Thanks to a generous grant from the Temple Brotherhood, the library now has a subscription to the newest online edition of the Encyclopaedia Judaica.
