Tehiyah has always been proud of our library and its extensive collection of diverse resource, inspirational, and educational books in both Hebrew and English. This year, the library has nearly doubled in size. The larger space enables more children to study, provides areas for collaboration, and creates space for much-needed new technology.
Tehiyah’s administration is aware that traditional means of research and learning, augmented by the ability to go on-line and search for information, increases the connection of students to their education. Libraries around the world are developing research sites, apps, catalogs, and e-books, as well as discovery tools. Tehiyah is meeting this challenge head-on. The library currently has 21 laptop computers running a full suite of design programs for students. Tehiyah purchased audio equipment for film production, and two new computers for video and audio design. Donated digital cameras are available for check-out. The library now includes a large whiteboard and an interactive projector, and two large mobile monitors hooked to Apple TVs. The library’s flexible layout is ideal for collaboration and teamwork.
The Tehiyah community is grateful to Alfred and Constance Weissman, lifelong supporters of Tehiyah. As we walk around our campus, their kindness and generosity are evident, and especially as we enjoy our new Library Commons improvements.
