Program Materials and Booklists
During the past year, the Council published
Standards for Jew
ish Libraries in Synagogues
Schools and Centers
, prepared by
the Association of Jewish Libraries, Synagogue, School and Cen-
ter Division; a pageant entitled
Jewish Books on Parade,
Frances Gelbart}, originally published by the Board of Jewish
Education of New York but long out of print.
A number of publications were revised, updated and reprinted.
In June we inaugurated a service to Jewish communal camps,
advising them of the resources we have available for the develop-
ment of camp libraries. A number of camps took advantage of
our services.
A Program Materials Committee, under the chairmanship of
David M. Kleinstein, continues to explore possibilities of develop-
ing new aids for Jewish book programming. Plans have been made
for the creation of new materials for the 1972 and 1973 Jewish
Book Month which will commemorate Israel's 25th anniversary.
