PJ Library

PJ Library is a Jewish family engagement program implemented on a local level throughout North America. Through the program, children are mailed free, high-quality Jewish children's literature and music on a monthly basis. All families raising Jewish children from age six months through eight years are welcome to enroll. The books are also available at the JCC Library for checkout.
