Andrea Davidson, Judaica Librarian
I have been working as the Temple Librarian of the Lee and Dolores Hartzmark Library for 14 years. My job includes ordering books, DVDs, periodicals and other materials for children and adults to keep the collection current, reviewing for and administering the monthly Literary Club Book Discussion, and doing educational and story programs for The Temple Learning Center and Ganon Gil Pre-School students. The Bookmark Contest is a favorite annual program, and I also review books for Jewish Book World and other professional journals.
Some of the best parts of my job have been getting to know so many congregants and students, as well as being able to take advantage of many of the wonderful programs The Temple offers. Being surrounded by interesting books and people–what could be better?
I am married to Bob Davidson, and we have two brilliant grandchildren who live too far away in California with our son Matt, who is Executive Director at Kehillit Israel Congregation.
