Free Monthly Jewish Content Books from the PJ Library

Conceived as a giving library, PJ Library is a family engagement program designed to strengthen the identities of Jewish families and their relationship to the Jewish community. We provide Jewish children, ages 6 months through 8 years old, a treasured, age-appropriate Jewish-themed book or CD FREE in the mail every month—that’s 12 packages each year. Along with the gift of children’s books and music, families receive a monthly e-newsletter and reading guides to enhance their PJ Library experience—all at no cost to the recipient.

This dynamic program has engaged more than 5,250 Jewish children in the 5 Valleys (Conejo, Antelope, San Fernando, Santa Clarita and Simi) since launching in 2008 and 4,200 in the Greater Los Angeles Metro-City area since launching in 2010.
