Shir Tikvah’s library contains approximately 2,000 titles, including music, journals, and films. The library is arranged by classification or category, starting in the southwestern corner, just beyond the fireplace. Reference materials, periodicals, and our children and young adult materials are located on the inner wall. Within each category, materials are generally alphabetical by author. Our “everyone” materials are arranged by classification or by title, with holiday books separated from general picture books.
Borrowing is a privilege of synagogue membership.
Currently enrolled participants in Shir Tikvah-sponsored courses may also borrow materials. Anyone borrowing materials should provide complete contact information including name, address (if not a member), phone number and email in the checkout log, located in the library. Community members may use resources in the library but may not borrow them.
Books may be borrowed for up to four weeks, other materials for up to two weeks. Please return borrowed materials to the designated return box. Be sure to return materials to Shir Tikvah and not to another library. Overdue reminders are sent periodically. If materials are not returned after three reminders are sent, then they are assumed to be lost and borrowers will be charged a replacement fee.
