The Little Free PJ Library That Could

This past May, Ezra Academy and Congregation B'nai Jacob celebrated the installation of their new "Little Free PJ Library," a collaborative project between the two organizations and PJ Library of Greater New Haven. The library box was built and painted by Jewish Teen Education (JTE) and Ezra. Located on the property shared by Congregation B'nai Jacob and Ezra Academy, the book exchange will be stocked with PJ Library books and will function on a "take one, leave one" basis. Families were encouraged to bring a gently used PJ Library book for a book swap and all of the extras were added to the library. Other family-friendly activities included bubbles, music, face-painting, “kindness rock” art projects, family bingo and a story walk.
