PJ Library

Enroll today! 

PJ Library (PJ for Pajamas) isn’t a library you visit; it comes to you. Knowing that families read together in the quiet moments before bedtime, when kids are in their PJs and getting ready for sleep, Harold Grinspoon, the program's founder thought, "Why not make these moments Jewish moments?” 

The program offers free, high-quality, age-appropriate Jewish children’s books and music to families on a monthly basis - no strings attached. The PJ Library also hosts local family story time events on a regular basis. For more information and to enroll in this free program, click here.
PJ Library receives support from the Federation Annual Campaign and special gifts from Jewish Federation donors.
