Donations & Volunteer Opportunities

If you have books you would like to donate, please first send Temple Librarian Harriet Wolf a detailed list of the items, providing author, title and year of publication. We have a limited amount of space and therefore must be judicious in our acquisitions. We accept books by Jewish authors or that have a Jewish theme. Books may be added to the library provided the item is in good condition and we don't already have them in our collection.

Please DO NOT drop off books without checking with the librarian first.

There are opportunities to preview and review new books for this webpage, and to staff the library before and after services and on Sundays during religious school hours.
