Library – Andrea Stanger

People Of The Book

The library has been an integral part of Temple David since its inception. It has always been supported by its members as they honor special people and life cycle events with generous donations.

Currently the library contains approximately 2,000 books for adults and over 1,000 books of Jewish interest for children and young adults — and it continues to grow! Special displays of new and holiday books change on a regular basis. We are especially proud of our children’s collection which ranges from board books for the very young to reading for adolescents.

Adults with interests as varied as cooking, fiction(both American and Israeli) history, holocaust, mysticism, parenting and much more will find lots to read.

Featured in September:

Fall is a busy time at the Temple David library.  High Holy Day books for all ages are on display now.  Grandparents, parents and teachers should look for Talia books (Talia and the Rude Vegetables and Talia and The Very Yum Kippur).  She has a little problem getting the words right but is always an enthusiastic helper.

Adults might be interested in Beginning Anew-A Women’s Guide to the High Holidays   (by Gail Reiner and Judith Kates) or The Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur Survival Kit     (by Shimon Apisdorf).

The High Holy Day books will be replaced by books on the fall festivals and then can Chanukah be far behind?  So keep checking out the library.

The library is open whenever the Temple  is open.  Temple members borrow and return books on the honor system.  Anyone who would like assistance should contact me at
