Join us for a virtual field trip to the Yiddish Book Center in Amherst, MA. Tour the Center and learn more about their mission to recover, celebrate, and regenerate Yiddish literature and culture.

Join us for a virtual field trip to the Yiddish Book Center in Amherst, MA. Tour the Center and learn more about the mission to recover, celebrate, and regenerate Yiddish literature and culture.

Patrons will be introduced to the Yiddish Book Center's architecturally distinct building, designed to resemble an Eastern European Jewish shtetl, or village, located in an apple orchard in western New England. Offered in conjunction with the library’s “Stories of Exile” reading group, which features works in Yiddish translation exploring questions of homelands, journeys, identity, and belonging, this tour will tell the story of how the book center was founded, what kinds of programs it runs, and how the Yiddish language continues to survive and grow today.


Held via Zoom, the program will consist of a short, lively lecture by Jennifer Young, Education Programs Manager at the Yiddish Book Center, followed by a Q&A. Closed captioning will be provided.

Whether you're a lifelong fan of Yiddish literature or simply curious to learn more about this fascinating language and culture, this virtual field trip is sure to be an informative and enriching experience.

More about the Stories of Exile Reading Group

We're able to offer this tour because Bexley Public Library was selected as a participating library for the Yiddish Book Center's "Stories of Exile" Reading Groups for Public Libraries for 2023.The Yiddish Book Center’s “Stories of Exile” Reading Groups for Public Libraries is a reading and discussion program to engage teens and adults in thinking about experiences of displacement, migration, and diaspora. In this program, librarians organize reading groups to discuss three books of Yiddish literature in translation, and one book related to the experience of a community served by their library.

The Yiddish Book Center’s “Stories of Exile” Reading Groups for Public Libraries is made possible by a gift from Sharon Karmazin.

About the branch

Bexley Public Library was founded in 1924 and first housed in Bexley High School, now Montrose Elementary School. The present building opened in 1929 and was designed by architects O.C. Miller and R.R. Reeves who drew upon French and Italian architecture from the 17th century for the design.

The library is located at 2411 East Main Street, at the intersection of East Main Street and Cassady Avenue. Parking is available in our parking lot on Euclaire Avenue and in front of the library on Main Street. Main Street is a No Parking Tow Zone from 4:00-6:00 p.m. weekdays.
