Welcome to the Association of Jewish Libraries Greater Cleveland Chapter! Our chapter of the national Association of Jewish Libraries has been promoting Jewish books and libraries for over forty years. The group’s members, committed to the mission of improving library service and professional standards in the field of Judaica, include librarians working in Jewish day schools, Jewish supplementary schools, synagogue libraries, public libraries, universities, and special collections libraries. Membership is open to all friends of Jewish libraries, regardless of work status or professional affiliation.
Through the decades, the Greater Cleveland Chapter has sponsored regional and national conferences, organized lectures and workshops, and served as a resource to the community’s Jewish libraries. Most recently, the 2007 AJL national convention was held in Cleveland, thanks to the efforts of our many active members. In addition to our work on the local level, several members of the Greater Cleveland Chapter are also active nationally, especially in the area of Jewish children’s books. The Chapter’s most well known outreach activity is its preparation of book lists for children and adults. The titles included are recommended by professionals in the field and help to guide readers to new authors and new topics. Our chapter’s history has been long and unusually productive. Join us, and help us to continue our work.
