Librarian Report to Congregants


WAKE UP!

END APATHY!

KEEP OUR TEMPLE VIBRANT AND ALIVE



YOUR LIBRARIAN REPORTS TO

CONGREGANTS


I have had an ad running on our web site asking for a congregant to volunteer to become my assistant to learn how to be a Temple Librarian and able to succeed me when I retire in the next year or two. (I’ll be 87!)


At the very moment I will be needing help much sooner than I had expected. I came down with a back/leg ailment that forces me to walk with a cane; take therapy twice a week; do many additional exercises at home; and sadly temporarily suspend my docent activity and the Museum of Jewish Heritage.


I will still be able to read to the youngsters once a month on Sundays and Mondays. Rabbi Mickey has gotten us many new books and I have a basket of books people leave us anonymously some of which are very valuable and some regrettably have to be discarded.  Carrying these books home and to index them and number them and cover them will be difficult for me during the next several months.


Being your librarian is a very fulfilling job. I enjoy it very much. But time is ticking and I sure can use the help…and provide a successor to me.
