PJ Library® is completely FREE for families in the Jewish Federation of Greater Toledo region.


PJ Library® seeks to engage Jewish families with young children making bedtime story-time Jewish. Each participating child in our community will receive a high-quality Jewish children’s book or CD every month, from age six months through age eight.


Each book and CD comes with resources to help families use the selection in their home. The book and music list has been selected by the foremost children’s book experts and includes a wide array of themes related to Jewish holidays, folktales and Jewish family life.


NEW PJ Our Way

Do you have children ages 8.5 - 11? Building on the success of PJ Library, which gives the gift of Jewish children's books each month to more than 140,000 children ages six months to eight years old in North America, PJ Our Way allows program participants to select one of four books every month, giving them more choice on their journey toward being lifelong readers while introducing them to Jewish ideas.


As part of the program, PJ Our Way participants can create book trailers, videos, quizzes, author interviews, and other media to communicate with peers about the books. The PJ Our Way website provides these new avenues for discussion.
