The library at The Breman includes non-circulating materials relating mostly to the Holocaust and to Jews in America and in particular, the South. Resources include city directories from 1876—1988, journals, and synagogue and community publications.

A small collection of Yizkor Books (memorial books) from Jewish communities destroyed during the Holocaust assists genealogists in the search for their roots.
