Jewish Libraries & Jewish Book Stores: Friends or Strangers?

The books on library shelves have to come from somewhere. Once they came from booksellers with direct relationships with the librarians. Now many libraries rely on Amazon.com and approval plan suppliers like Yankee Book Peddler and have fewer or even only rare contacts with Jewish booksellers. Is this an unavoidable function of our modern world are are there other choices? Reporting on discussions with various booksellers and academic and synagogue librarians, some suggestions will be made.

Presented by Henry Hollander,  bookseller and San Francisco Rabin Library Committee Chair
