About PJ Library

PJ Library is a philanthropic program that sends Jewish children a free monthly gift of Jewish children’s literature, growing with the child from ages 0-12. (PJ Our Way is the branch for older kids, ages 9-12, which includes a choice of 4 chapter books each month.) PJ Library has also become a premier family engagement program, where program professionals partner with local synagogues, Jewish schools, and parent leaders to offer family programs that foster joy, connection and learning for families on their Jewish journeys.
