Kirjath-sepher: City of books,
(Joshua 15:15) same as Kirjath-sannah (q.v.), now
represented by the valley of ed-Dhaberiyeh, south-west of Hebron. The
name of this town is an evidence that the Canaanites were acquainted
with writing and books. "The town probably contained a noted school,
or was the site of an oracle and the residence of some learned
priest." The "books" were probably engraved stones or bricks.
