PJ Library mails high-quality, Jewish children's books, and music to families every month. This FREE resource is for any family raising Jewish children from birth through 8 years old. It’s a gift to families from the Jewish Federation of Howard County, in partnership with generous local funders and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.
Since Harold Grinspoon first sent Jewish books to 200 children in Western Massachusetts in 2005, PJ Library has grown to send free books to more than 200,000 subscribers throughout the United States and Canada. Today, PJ Library is an expanding global community linked by shared stories and values that spans across five continents and more than 620,000 subscribers. These families are able to explore the timeless core values of Judaism through the art and literature of these free children's books. In Howard County, about 500 families currently participate in PJ Library!
Sign up today! In addition to receiving fantastic, age-appropriate Jewish children’s books every month, you’ll be invited to PJ Library programs and events throughout the year.
Make some new friends! Sign up and join in the fun.

Sign up to get a PJ Library Holiday Craft Kit!
Are you interested in doing crafts for the Jewish holidays with your children? Smiles4Children and PJ Library in Howard County are happy to provide these holiday craft kits.
The kits contain materials for 7 crafts and span Hanukkah through Passover, including a special Shabbat craft. Each kit will contain an instruction sheet. You should purchase a kit for each child interested. With the exception of the special Shabbat craft, children as young as 18 months can do these crafts.
Thanks to the generosity of Smiles4Children, we are happy to provide these kits at no charge. A suggested donation of $18 per kit can be made below. Donations support the work of the Jewish Federation of Howard County, such as PJ Library, and provide social, emotional, and financial support for those in need.
Only a few kits are left. Email Allison to reserve one!
