Welcome to Our Library!

The CBS Library has an extensive Judaica collection for adults, including fiction, biography, other nonfiction and reference materials.  There is a picture book collection organized to make it easy to find books about Jewish holidays, holy days, and other topics. We also have a section for young readers.

Our library is located in the front of the building (along 18th Street) on the second floor, in same corner as the sanctuary below. It is open available whenever synagogue staff are present and is set up for self-service.

You can see what’s in our collection by searching the our online catalog below.
