Notice biographique / histoire administrative
The Jewish Public Library was the brainchild of R. Brainin and Y. Kaufman, who founded it in 1914 in Montreal. It has grown and developed over the decades from a collection that was 50% Yiddish to a large selection of books in four languages, audio-visual materials, archives, a children's library, and wide-ranging recreational activities. It is non-sectarian, has (in addition to the main branch) a branch in Chomedey, and has 75% of its collection relating to Judaica. It has moved several times. Its aim is to foster and preserve Jewish culture and literature. It is the largest Jewish library in Canada.
