In 2013, CBI member Caren Zaft observed how books in the library were not cataloged or arranged in easily retrievable order. She decided to learn a system of cataloging, pulled together a few helpers and reorganized the library of 2,000 books by entering them on suggested by the Association of Jewish Libraries.

Today, we have a committee of eleven women who are committed to promoting the library as an interesting, “living”, valuable resource. They are in the process of developing a mission statement, policies and exciting plans for 2020.
