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.
