The PJ Library: Now Offering Free Summer Events

We told you about the great program called The PJ Library here last summer. The PJ Library is like a Jewish “Book of the Month” club for kids and it’s absolutely free.

The PJ Library offers  high-quality Jewish books and music each month to families raising Jewish children ages six months to 5 ½ years old in more than 125 communities across the United States and Canada.

Families in Baristaville can enjoy the benefits of The PJ Library through the MetroWest program. Children living in Essex, Morris, Sussex, and Northern Union counties can receive a FREE age appropriate Jewish content book or CD at their home every month. In addition, parents receive a monthly E-Newsletter with more information about the books and local happenings in the Jewish Community. Kids must be 6 months – 5 1/2 years old to subscribe. The program is also available to special needs children over the age of 5 1/2–just email Andrea Bergman, The PJ Library Coordinator, to discuss the appropriate age level.

Now, in addition to the books and CDs, The PJ Library is holding family events in our area. This month, there are two fun ways to spend time with your family:
