Temple Beth Israel’s Louis Family Library has an outstanding collection of over 2000 books, DVDs, and music CDs for all ages. The collection stays fresh and current thanks to generous contributions to the Library Special Fund as well as direct donations of books and other materials.
We are generally open on Sunday mornings Fall through Spring during Jewish Community School and also most Tuesday afternoons throughout the year. Other times can be arranged on an individual basis. If visiting in person isn’t convenient you are welcome to send requests and questions via email and/or through the online catalog. You can also phone the temple office at (909) 626-1277 and ask for Deborah Klein in the library.
The Louis Family Library does not currently have its own ebook collection. However, all residents of Southern California are able to use the digital collection of the Sperber Jewish Community Library of Los Angeles, completely free of charge. The Sperber Library includes thousands of Jewish themed ebooks and audiobooks, and uses OverDrive and Libby just like our local public libraries. You can apply for a Sperber Library card here, and the digital catalog is found here . More information about the Sperber Library is available here.
