Hi friends
And just like that its Fall!
Hope you are settling into the rythm of the new school year and enjoying this glorious weather.
Please remember to let me know if you have moved, or if you know of a family we can welcome to PJ Library.
If your child is eligible to join PJ Our Way (8 1/2 and older) all you have to do is go online and activate your account.
PJOW families please remember to choose your books by the 10th of the month and to register for our online workshop on October 17th.

Exciting Podcast Announcement!
New from the storytellers at PJ Library: Beyond the Bookcase and Afternoons with Mimi are two magical family podcasts that bring Jewish traditions, culture, holidays, and values to life for kids of all ages! Listen and subscribe wherever you get your podcasts.
 
As kids socialize more often, how do you talk to them about gossip? Try these tips, books, and activities.
 
There's so much you can do with challah dough! These eight ideas are sure to inspire clean plates.

If you're looking for ways to talk with your children about the events they might be seeing on the news or hearing about at school, start with these picture and middle-grade books about the refugee experience.
Check out the four great books that PJ Our Way is offering for selection this October! Choose a realistic fiction story about friendship, family, and food, or travel back in time with a Hanukkah-themed graphic novel. Follow a 12-year-old amateur magician who longs to be normal, or see what happens when a kid encourages her family to celebrate Hanukkah. Pick your next book by October 10th!
 
Applications for the National Advisory Team Are Now Open!
PJ Our Way is looking for voracious readers who want to share their opinions about books for the advisory committee! This team of kids reads and reviews books that PJ Our Way is considering offering for selection. All PJ Our Way members are eligible to apply for this opportunity -- email designteam@pjourway.org for more information.
