Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Mollie Harris Jewish Community Center Collection  consists of Harris's working papers from the library regarding staff, long range planning, budgeting, publicity and working documents for programs. It includes detailed information about events and speakers, including guest registers, newspaper clippings and press releases. General program information, staff minutes, policies and documents regarding the functions of the overall JCC are also present.
In 1957 the Jewish Community Center moved from its original location, a storefront on El Cajon Blvd and 30th St. in North Park, to 54th St. between El Cajon Blvd. and University Ave. Joseph Astor, when he became the director of the new JCC, moved the Center's library of 538 volumes to the art gallery, and engaged Mollie Harris, a professional librarian. Over the years, she and Joseph Astor developed a Jewish community library at the JCC.
