Welcome to PJ Library!

If you are a young family in the Greater New Haven area you can receive a free Jewish children's book every month, compliments of PJ Library. PJ Library serves any family raising Jewish children from birth through 8.5 years of age, including affiliated, unaffiliated, interfaith or non-traditional families.


There is no cost to you! It’s a gift from the Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven, a group of generous local donors, and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.


In our community, PJ Library is about more than just the books. Throughout the year we gather for story times and special programs where you can come to meet new friends.


If you are new to the Greater New Haven area or just finding out about PJ Library, don't delay in getting in on the fun.


Just sign up online or contact us at pjlibrary@jewishnewhaven.org.


Those PJ Library books will arrive in your mailbox very soon!
