PJ Grandparents

A variety of topics and issues are discussed that help grandparents use PJ Library as a way to connect with grandchildren, whether they live in Dayton or are out of town.

In addition to the free books that PJ Library sends to more than 180,000 children in the United States and Canada each month, children and families will now be able to listen to the best in Jewish kids music, for free.
