Using the Library
The Temple Library is located across the hall from Simon Hall. It is open
whenever the Temple is open.
BorrowingThe library uses a shelf checkout system, there
are book due date cards in the back of every book. To check out a book, please
write your name and phone number on the due date cards and place them in the
small gray box on the computer desk. Books should be typically returned within
one month; however, this is only a guideline. Because we have a small collection
of audiovisual materials (DVDS, CDS and Videos), these items should be returned
within one week.
DonationsThe Library always welcomes donations, we ask
that they be good condition (no mold, ripped pages etc.) In order to maintain a
current collection, we ask that they be no more then ten years old. If the
library can’t find a place for them, we will donate them to other libraries or
