Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to trace the roots and origins of Jewish workers' libraries in Palestine in the period of the first and second immigration. The first part provides the historical background. The focus of the second part is on the eastern European scene, especially on ideological factors and their realization in the creation of workers' libraries by Jewish labor organizations. These served as sources of inspiration for the establishment of similar institutions in Palestine. The motivating forces active in their creation, origins, and characteristics are the subject of the third part.
