Book Fair Project
The Henry and Delia Meyers
Library at the Jewish Community
Center of Metropolitan Detroit will
benefit from a special project during
the 51st annual Jewish Book Fair,
which will take place Nov. 6-17 at
both JCC buildings.
During the book fair, attendees
will be asked to buy a book for the
library when they purchase books for
themselves. A personalized book
plate will be inserted bearing the
name of someone the donor wishes
to honor or memorialize. The gift of
books will be tax deductible.
This project was created to
enhance the library collection and
will take place at the Kahn building
during the book fair.
