Welcome to PJ Library and PJ Our Way!

If you are a Jewish family with young children in the greater New Haven area, you can receive the gift of free, high-quality children's books, music, and resources that foster deeper engagement with Jewish life from the Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven, in partnership with PJ Library®.

 

PJ Library serves families with children from birth through 8.5 years of age, while PJ Our Way serves Jewish children ages 9 through 12, including affiliated, unaffiliated, interfaith or non-traditional families.

 

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!

Audio & Video Resources

 

Welcome to

“Have I Got a Story For You!”

Every episode of Have I Got a Story For You takes a classic Jewish folk tale and gives it a modern twist. You can explore episodes here and if you find one you really like, be sure to click on the episode page to find activities, book lists, and keep the fun going.

We're So into Caribu, and Now We're on It Too! 
Created by a PJ Library parent, Caribu is a genius app that integrates children’s books and activities right into a video call, making it the easiest way for faraway friends and relatives to play with and read to your kids. We agreed with Time magazine when they named it one of the best inventions of 2019, but we’re even more excited to announce that select PJ Library books are now available on the app! Sign up for your free Caribu subscription and search for PJ Library to get started.
