In partnership with Memphis In May, the Jewish Public Library (JPL) of Montreal presents: A 100-year Photohistory of Stories Told from the JPL
In the Gallery May 1–31
The Jewish Public Library of Montreal opened its doors in 1914 under the name Folks Biblyotek. It was intended to be a public institution serving the entire Jewish community, regardless of political allegiance, religious denomination, language or cultural origin. This exhibit demonstrates how, one hundred years later, the JPL still fulfills this role marvelously for both the Jewish and non-Jewish communities, while preserving and promoting a rich heritage.
