The Paula and Shaya Kirman Library

The library at the Peretz Centre contains possibly the largest collection of Yiddish language books and journals in Western Canada. In addition, the library contains over 1,000 English language Judaica books.

Two significant bequests to the library are now being catalogued, labelled and shelved: the Gersh Winrob collection of English language books, mostly on the Holocaust, and the Mirriam Waddington collection of English and Yiddish titles on a variety of topics.

The library has recently changed online hosts. The new instructions for accessing the online catalog follow.

Until further notice, the library will be open Friday mornings as well as Sunday mornings when we have classes or an event. Please leave a message for the Librarian at the Peretz office, 604-325-1812, if you have any questions.
