Yes but due to COVID it’s pickup only, you need to call and place your order
It’s my favorite library, I wish I could give them a million dollars to move to a decent place, revamp and computerize everything and make it not so ancient.
They have such great books that I haven’t seen anywhere else, the library is just run like it’s stuck in the Middle Ages...
Can you tell me why there isn’t a single decent Jewish library in BP that’s like the public library?

I saw an add for JCC Marine Park - they're campaigning to raise money for such a library.

I know, I saw that ad and was drooling, that concept is so beautiful, marine park is just a little too far for me.

There's another library in BP but their prices do not make sense to me.

Nobody has more books than the jyl, all the newer libraries have only the new books, jyl has the old great classics you won’t find anywhere else. And their well priced as well. The key is to build a relationship with Necha, then she puts aside good books for you (I really shouldn’t reveal the secret in public Wink)
