Judaica Donated

by Press Release-CCC | Feb 20, 2005
Judaica Donated Camden County College's Blackwood Campus Library has received a generous donation of Judaica from the private collection of a Delaware woman.

Sylvia Korn of Hockessin, Del., contacted the college in late August to offer books on Israel, the Holocaust and Judaism to the library. Korn first got the idea of donating her materials to CCC when she read a newspaper article regarding the many volumes that Cherry Hill's Beth Jacob-Beth Israel Synagogue had donated to the library in 1995. She decided that, some day, her books would join them.

According to Joan Getaz, director of library services for the college, the synagogue's donation resulted because of CCC's dedication to Holocaust education. These efforts, which have been coordinated by faculty member Dr. John L. Pesda for more than a decade, include courses for the college's students and special workshops for public and private schoolteachers throughout the region. Such activities are rare for a community college, Getaz said, and so is having such an extensive collection of related reading material.

Getaz visited Korn's home and returned with approximately 75 more books to add to the library's already sizable collection of Judaica. The volumes have been catalogued by library staff, and they are now available to use on-site or to borrow. Like the rest of the college's library resources, these books are usable by students and other members of the college community as well as by the public through Camden County's inter-library loan system.

Anyone wishing to donate books or other reference materials on any subject to Camden County College's library should contact librarian Patricia Fazio at (856) 227-7200, ext. 4402, or pfazio@camdencc.edu.
