Reserve a Book

We’re trying out a new system for library ‘holds’. To reserve a book send an email to jccvictoria.library@gmail.com or fill out the form below. Once we confirm that the book has been put aside for you, come to the JCC and ask for it at the front desk. If you would like to have the book delivered, be sure to let us know how we can contact you to arrange for delivery. 

About the Catalog

The online catalog is a work-in-progress by JCCV volunteers. It may not be entirely accurate. We’re working on it. If you notice an error, please let me know. The purpose of the catalog is to let you know what our library has on offer. It doesn’t have a way for you to reserve a book online.

The catalog represents books owned by the JCCV. At any given moment, a particular book may be out on loan or may have gone missing. When I become aware of that, I’ll make a note in the catalog.

Clicking on a library section listed above will open the catalog in Airtable, a simple database tool available on the web. You don’t need to sign in or have an Airtable account to view the catalog.

Most of the entries in the library catalog include a link to GoodReads, a social network owned by Amazon. The link is there to help you find more information about a book. The JCCV does not benefit when you visit GoodReads. You don’t need to have an Amazon or GoodReads account to view a book’s details there, but you will be subject to their terms of service and privacy policy while on the GoodReads site.

The image of each book is just for illustration purposes. The actual book on our shelf may not look the same. Many books don’t have a photo—I’ll try to add those over time.

Many thanks to Amber Woods for entering data into the catalog.

I’d also like to thank former librarians Juliet Simon and Joel Fagan for organizing and maintaining the library until now.

I hope you find the library useful. Happy reading!

—Leah (the librarian)
