Yom Rishon, 23 Shevat 5777

Library BooksThe Library Committee meets on the first and third Friday mornings of each month, except during the summertime. The committee decides which new books to order, and then procures, catalogs, and covers them. Books are shelved, and stray books are put away as needed. Displays are thoughtfully arranged in accordance with the holidays and seasons. Book reviews are planned throughout the year. Committee members see that the Book Cart is kept current with the newest publications and that it is present at the Oneg Shabbats.

Interested temple members are encouraged to join the committee. For more information please contact Helene Handelman at helhand@aol.com.
