Welcome to the PJ Library program! Do you enjoy reading bedtime stories with your children? Imagine turning those special moments into Jewish moments, and using picture books to discuss Jewish values and culture with your children. Families all over Western Massachusetts are enjoying stories about Jewish values, holidays and traditions.

PJ Library is an outreach and engagement program that sends monthly mailings of free, high quality, age-appropriate Jewish themed books and activities to the homes of families with children from birth through 13 years old.

PJ Library is an international program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.
