Library Introduction

Welcome to our Hungarian Library!

Update May 14, 2021 - The library is opening on an appointment basis.  Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you would like to schedule a time to visit.

We're delighted to share our collection of over 1600 books (and growing!) with the Hungarian community.

The idea of establishing a library came from our Chairman, Gabe Rozsa in May of 2018. As the Foundation received generous book donations over the years, we had a very good number of volumes to start with. A small group of volunteers started cataloguing the books, first in a smaller office room. We quickly outgrew the first location, and we relocated to a larger room within our building. The motivated group of volunteers have not only catalogued the books, but also put the collection through a curating and categorizing process.  

The end result is an organized collection of Hungarian volumes, books about Hungary, and Hungarian authors' books in English. In our catalogue you can find classic novels, children's books, poetry, drama, science, history, journalism, a large collection of biographies and more. You can access the online catalogue, and start browsing. Look under "Browse our catalogue" in the top menu.

Our library isn't intended only as a home for the available books, but also as space for library events once the pandemic is over. We have hosted story hours for kids, movie nights, cultural lectures, and more but have had to suspend them during the pandemic.  We hope to resume our cultural programs again soon.  

 

Our Library Coordinator, Eszti Suto, and our volunteers are happy to help you enroll as a member, and find the books to take with you when you visit. At the present, we are not yet open but hope to be soon.  Please check back regularly for our return to serving the community on a limited basis.    


We're looking forward to meeting you in person, and showing you around our library.
