Welcome to PJ Library!
PJ Library of Silicon Valley helps families with children 0-12 years old create treasured Jewish moments from the simple act of reading stories together.
How does it work?
PJ Library will send your family FREE Jewish children’s books and CDs each month. These gifts celebrate the joy of Jewish culture, values, and tradition— you’ll love them as much as your kids do! A program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, PJ Libary is made possible through partnerships with philanthropists and local Jewish organizations. You can donate to support the work of PJ Library in Silicon Valley.
Who is PJ Library for?
PJ Library welcomes all Jewish families, whatever your background, knowledge, observance or family make-up. We welcome everyone, regardless of eligibility, to access the PJ Library website for our book lineups, craft ideas and reading tips.
Beyond the books:
We are here to help you connect with other families through local events. Our monthly e-newsletter, which you will automatically receive once you sign up for PJ Library, includes a list of upcoming programs in your neighborhood, and we post regular event updates on our Facebook and Instagram accounts at #pjlibrarysv.
