(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The Jewish National Library of Jerusalem will be represented at the convention of the American Library Association, which will be held October 4th at Atlantic City, N.J.

The Jewish National Library, which is a part of the Hebrew University, has accepted the invitation of the American Association and has delegated Miss Yudin as its representative.

On Sunday, June 18, the cornerstone of the David Wolffsohn House was laid on Mount Scopus. The commencement of the new building, which now houses the Jewish National and Hebrew University Library, was presided over by Dr. Judah L. Magnes.

The Jewish National and Hebrew University Library was recently the recipient of a gift donated by the Jewish Community of Munich. The gift consists of a collection of aeroplaneview photographs of Palestine, made during the war, and furnish a wealth of material for the research worker. The photographs were mounted by the donors and filed, so that they are easily accessible for scientific work.
