A scientific and academic library for the future Jerusalem University is to be erected on Mount Scopus, according to Dr. Heinrich Loewe, of Berlin, who addressed the regular meeting of the New York Palestine Development League. Dr. Loewe, who is in this country in the interest of the library project, described the present reading facilities in Jerusalem and said that on the one hand there was a dearth of technical literature for which there was a great demand, and on the other hand, the National Library in Jerusalem was entirely too small to accommodate the readers and the volumes already contributed. He is here to raise funds for building, maintenance, and the purchase of literary material.
