AACI E-Book Library Now Includes Harper Collins Titles
The AACI members now have free access to books published by Harper Collins through the Sharon Woodrow Memorial E-Book Library. Open to members of the organization, the library is the first English-language virtual library in Israel and one of the first e-book libraries in any language in the country.
David London, executive director of AACI, expressed thanks to the family of Sharon Woodrow, particularly her sister, Diane Romm, who approached the organization with the idea of the e-book library. A native of New York and an avid reader, Sharon married Paul Glaser and moved with him to Haifa in 1990, where she passed away in 2014.

Safed Edyth Geiger Memorial English Library. 
38 Jerusalem Street. 
Open: Sundays,  10:00 - 11:30, Mondays, 19:00 - 21:00
           Tuesdays, 14:00 - 16:30. Fridays,    09:00 - 11:30.
Located on the main street of the ancient mountaintop city of Safed in northern Israel is a treasure known to a constantly growing number of Israelis and foreigners alike. What common interest draws some 500 English speakers up the mountain?  Simply a love of books, and the opportunity to find them at the Safed English Library. The attractive new street entrance makes the library more convenient, allowing the disabled easy access to the two upper rooms.
The Stamp Club meets at the library on the first Friday of every month, at 12:45.
