Serving the JTS students and scholars and researchers around the world, The Library is home to more than 425,000 volumes, making it the largest and most extensive collection of Hebraic and Judaic material in the Western Hemisphere. See The Library Schedule and Events, Exhibitions, and Programs.

The JTS Library is now open in its temporary quarters, providing full services. All of its long-term policies continue unchanged. All users may use books available onsite and, if you have borrowing privileges, you may order books from offsite storage at no charge. If you do not have borrowing privileges, you will be asked to pay a fee for retrieval of offsite books, but you may choose to become a member in order to obtain borrowing privileges and avoid fees. The Rare Book Room and Special Collections are closed, but a specialized librarian is onsite to help you find digitized images of our rare materials online. Beginning January 4, archives will be retrievable from our offsite storage facility.
