History / Biographical
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.
