Shul Library 
We are glad that many of our members are using the shul library and want to encourage everyone to take advantage of this resource. Please keep in mind that without a staff we need everyone's cooperation to keep the library organized and accessible to everyone:
  • Do not take books from the library out of the shul unless prior arrangements have been made and we can keep a record of books removed.
  • Return books to the shelf where they came from in the location that they were in. If they are part of a set, please help keep the set intact and in order. Do not leave books on the table or in random locations on shelves.
  • We are missing some books that members have presumably borrowed. If you have any of the shul's books, please let Bonnie Rogovin (the.rogovins@gmail.com) know that you have them and please return them promptly.
