Tucson Association of Jewish Libraries
The goal of the TAJL is to unite individual branches of Jewish libraries (at area congregations and the Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona) and make their collections searchable and usable by all. Through this effort, we hope to bring about a deeper understanding of the Jewish community. The library is filled with literary treasures of the Jewish people that touch on philosophy, history, religion, and fiction. With more than 2,000 books and audiovisual materials in the catalog, the Library is a valuable resource. It is truly a gift to the Tucson community.
