Debbie Parchem, Librarian

The West Temple Library is a basic reference library for our congregation and school, and a Judaica Resource Center for the community-at-large.

Today the collection consists of thousands of items, including books and audiovisual materials. To inform the membership of additions to the collection, we publish an annotated New Book Column in our monthly Temple Bulletin.

To make this collection as easy to use as possible, everything is fully cataloged, and we use a modified Dewey Decimal System-Books and audiovisual materials may be borrowed for 4 weeks.
