Hello Library Lovers!
We have been busy in the library readying it for the start of school and the holidays. We appreciate all of the generous library fund donations we have been receiving, letting us start a new and exciting project!
Many of you have expressed how much you love our library, but did you know that we at Temple Israel have the most extensive Jewish interest and Judaica collection in Northern New England? I am constantly exploring ways to make these materials more accessible to you and the Jewish community at large, and am currently changing the call numbers in the children’s area to reflect the content in a more efficient way.
For example, as the project progresses, a book that was once “j244.53 Cohen” will now be “J Pesach Cohen” and will be color coded by category for easy finding.
In future weeks, I will also be changing the adult and young adult fiction to FIC and the biographies to BIO. I am hoping that these new call numbers will help you all find exactly what you want when you want it! We will also be installing clearly labeled signs that point you to the right section.
Please stop by in the meantime– we have many new books, movies, and music for your pleasure. The book sale will be going on in the schmooze during the month of September, so please buy some books to further show your undying support of the library.
