About the project
The Patt Elementary School was a secular public school serving children in the Patt and Katamonim neighborhoods. The Jerusalem Foundation created the Josefowitz Library in the school in 1983 by renovating a minimal library in poor condition. The library served as both a school and a neighborhood public library. In 1990, it supported enrichment programs at the school. Due to declining enrollment, the school closed in 2002 and the facility became home to the Kedma School, which retained the Josefowitz Library.
