Temple Jeremiah

Schwimmer Library

We hope you’ll visit our beautiful Marshall B. and Viola R. Schwimmer Library and our Children’s Library next time you’re at temple.

To check out a book, follow the instructions in the inside card.

Volunteer to keep our library up to date by ordering and cataloguing new books and shelving returned books. Help set up special displays for Holidays and special topics. We also are in need of literary members who would like to read and write reviews for the Covenant on newly published Jewish books. We welcome any ideas you may have to improve our library. For more information or to volunteer, contact Daniel Glassman at daniel@templejeremiah.org or 847/441-5760 ext.102.
