Nat ional Library Week
Th e National Book Committee, sponsor of the National Li-
brary Week held April 8-14, 1962, requested the cooperation of
the Council in stimulating Jewish organizations to participate in
this program, which was gladly given. We also arranged to send

Jewish Community Centers.
