National Yiddish Book Center Drives Towards Completion

This 21,000sf addition to the National Yiddish Book Center will house a new multi-purpose room, commercial kitchen, gallery, administrative offices, student center, classrooms, recording studio and climate controlled book storage.  The project is sustainably designed with emphasis on geothermal heating/cooling, day lighting, energy optimization, building system controls and eco-friendly interior products.

As a cultural and educational institution, special consideration is being paid to user experience in the space, with comfort, ease and an environment of learning as part of the core fundamentals to this project.  Set for completion in mid 2009, the National Yiddish Book Center project will continue its mission as a non-profit organization working to rescue Yiddish and other modern Jewish books and celebrate the culture they contain.
