Beth El Library

Regular Library operations have been suspended since mid-March 2020, due to the pandemic. Currently library books are available for circulation when the building is open. Congregants and staff may check out books by the usual honor system, filling out white cards in back book pockets and placing them in the basket on the Librarian’s desk, except for Shabbat when the cards are to be clipped to member cards in the adjacent Shabbat filing box and placed in the basket.

The search function of the library online catalog is always available to browse our collections to identify books to borrow or buy from other sites. The homepage of the Beth El Library online catalog has links to recordings, periodicals, publicly available digital book collections and bulletins with book recommendations, reviews, and news.
