Nicole Beaudry, Librarian Nicole worked at the Jewish Public Library (JPL) for 6 years as a reference librarian, archivist, and children’s librarian. Her extensive research on the provenance and printing histories of the JPL’s rare book collection has shaped the workshop initiative. She has a specific interest in the roles of women in the history of the Jewish printing industry.
Eddie Stone, Hebraica Cataloguer, Jewish Public Library Eddie has worked at the JPL for over 20 years in various capacities, and his involvement in the Rare Books Initiative culminated in the completion of the cataloguing and description of the collection in 2016. His involvement has extended to research and bibliographic support, as well as to the provenance and history of some of the more challenging volumes in the collection to Canadian culture.

In the spring of that year, he co-curated the exhibit of the rare books “A Roomful of Dwellings”, and 2 years later, co-curated the exhibit, “Decanting Memory” in a collaboration with the Jacob Lowy Collection of Library & Archive Canada. He developed the workshop programme as a way to keep the narratives and stories of these books alive and vital.
