Our temple has three amazing library collections totaling nearly 5000 items, multiple learning spaces, and an Internet cafe. In addition, we have WIFI throughout the building.
Please feel free to visit our libraries any time the building is open (the adult library used for Adult Ed on Thursdays at 11am).
All members are welcome to borrow books.
Its easy, just fill out the card located in the back of the book and leave it in the designated spot in the libraries or on the New Arrivals book cart located in the temple lobby.
