The Library


Library Oic

Check out our Or Chadash Library! We have Jewish themed books in many areas – history, biography, Israel, fiction, humor, holocaust, and cookbooks. There is also a section for Tucson authors with an Or Chadash connection. Children’s books and reference books are in our collection, but have not yet been completely catalogued. Recently, many books from Rabbi Joseph Weizenbaum and Alan Pearlman have been donated and are included in the collection.

All Or Chadash members are registered to use the library. We are also open to the community. Non-Or Chadash members will need to fill out an information sheet in order to be registered.

Our catalog is on line. You can also access the Tucson Jewish Community Library catalog on line.

We welcome donations of new and gently used books. Suggestions are always welcome. Your book reviews are also welcome and will be posted in the library and on our website.
