Stories that bring us together.
Every month, PJ Library sends free, award-winning books that celebrate Jewish values and culture to families with children from birth through 8 years old.
The journey continues with PJ Our Way®, designed for tweens ages nine through twelve, who receive free Jewish-themed graphic novels and chapter books.
By sharing timeless stories of Jewish traditions, values and heritage, PJ Library programs are helping to build a stronger Jewish community, one book at a time.
Participation in the program is absolutely free.
Join today! Signing up is free, easy, and takes less than 3 minutes.
