Rabbi Lindemann Lifelong Learning Center

Membership has its perks, they say, and one of the best perks of Temple Beth Sholom membership is the use of the Rabbi Steven C. Lindemann Lifelong Learning Center of the Adele and Terry Uhr Library. Located to the right just as you enter the building, the Library offers a full range of resources for our member families and our staff. We have over 5,000 books, 600 films and a large collection of audio books for your use. Want a good novel? A mystery? A book on life cycle events? History? A cookbook? A biography? A children's book? We have large selections of all of these and much more. We are considered a Special Library as all of our materials have a Jewish focus.

The Library is open Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday mornings from 9:30 am - 12:30 pm, Wednesday afternoons from 2 - 5 pm, and Sunday mornings during the school year. You are invited to visit and enjoy this special place. You can also call and reserve materials to be left for you at the front desk to pick up when it's convenient. So stop by and say hello and find something to enjoy!

The Library‚Äôs catalogue is now searchable using our new software, ResourceMate, funded in part by a grant from the Jewish Community Foundation, Inc. You can check to see if the Library has a book you're looking for and email our librarian,  Minna Siegel, to hold items for you or to request items you would like to add to our collection.
