Sweet Summer Series 2021

Sweet Summer Series

Join PJ Library and our partners for playtime and popsicles at your local playground! We’ll gather with other families to socialize while social distancing. Check the schedule for one near you! Not ready for gathering outside yet? We will also have an online option!

Our Mitzvah Project for the Sweet Summer Series is sending letters for Love for Our Elders. Get the details!

Good for all ages but most appreciated by kids 3-7 years old.

Each program is one hour long, unless otherwise specified. Each event is limited to 15 families.
