Evolving from two small, specialized libraries, those of the
Zionist and labor Zionist groups, the institution has broadened
its scope to include all aspects of Judaism, both ancient and
modern. The Jewish Public Library’s fifty-six years of existence
has marked a period of constant growth and service, particularly
to the Yiddfsh-speaking section of the Jewish community. To
the general Jewish community, the Jewish Public Library sym­
bolizes the dedication of “Everyman” to the spirit of education
and culture.
