PJ Library and PJ Our Way in Monterey County

The PJ Library (PJ as in pajamas) provides your family with a FREE treasury of Jewish books and music. Children up to age 9 within Monterey County are eligible to subscribe.  It is easy to enroll!  To enroll click here or visit the PJ Library website to enroll.

PJ Our Way is for kids ages 8 ½ – 11 who are ready to graduate from picture books into chapter books.  Parents give their children permission to go on-line and choose their monthly book (it is NOT chosen for them, they must actively select a book each month).  Similar to PJ Library, the subscription is free. Go to the PJ Our Way website to enroll.

If you do not live with a young child, please pass the mailing on to someone else.  Whether you’re a parent, a grandparent, or friend of someone with young children, please help us share news of this special program with Jewish families throughout the Monterey County area who have children through age 9.  Are there children you love who live outside of this community?  You are welcome to purchase a gift subscription for them.  Please visit the PJ Library website or call The PJ Library at (413) 439-1981 to find out the details.

Happy Reading!

Our thanks go to the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, Women for Reform Judaism and the Hornik Family Foundation who underwrite this worthy program allowing your children their free subscriptions.
