Fabulously educational, moving and entertaining; all at once. If you only have an hour, stop in to view the movie about the history ofthe centre and bio of the founder, Aaron Lansky. If you have a full day, even better. The peaceful setting and magnificent architecture transport you back to an old Eastern European Jewish village; a Shtetl. The staff is very friendly, helpful and we have returned for visits each time we are in the area. The book collection defies description. For children, there are interactive exhibits and for adults and kids a wonderful room is set up to resemble an old living room with old music recordings to listen to through headsets. Outside the building are lovely, peaceful gardens to walk through or simply have a seat and read. I'm not sure how long it would take to really "get to know" the book collection, but I do know that each time we have stopped in we have left feeling very enriched with the Yiddish culture that we missed out on growing up.
