What happens when you register another child?
You get 2 of the same book
If you don't care why would you comment?

There is another organization that does free Jewish books..... http://www.pjlibrary.org/parents-and-families/enrollment.aspx they have locations all over the country so your bound to find a center that is near by.

To enroll find the closest location to you, and go to there information page on the left side mid way thought the page you will see a yellow button that says "Enroll In This Community" hit it and enter your info!

Good luck!

Nice find. 

When you sign up, you choose an age group and that determines the books you get.  You can see the list of books for each age group here

You get 2 of the same book

Actually, I don't think that's true. If you sign up 2 children that are the same age you'll get 2 of the same book. But I know that my sister-in-law signed up her now 4 year old a long time ago and now more recently also signed up her 8 month old. The books that she's now getting for the 8 month old are not the same books she got for her 4 year old when the 4 year old was that young.

The only exception is the first book, which is always The Little Engine That Could.

I was basing it off the first book.  I got 2 engines that could. In the second month I only got 1 book.

We actually got The Little Engine That Could last month on Shabbos. We saw it with the rest of the mail in the afternoon, but by mincha time already it was gone. But like I mentioned, my sis-in-law signed both of her children up so she was happy to give us her 2nd copy. This month we got Good Night Gorilla.

Anyway, it's supposed to be age-appropriate, so as long as you signed them up as their actual ages you should get different books.

Maybe someone took it, which is what happened to me. Either way, it's always the first book.

The first month after a child enrolls, he/she receives a copy of the book Dolly Parton first gave to all of the children in her home county, The Little Engine That Could.
This site also has a list of books that have been given out.

Rafi has received a number of books from PJ already.

Which community would Flatbush be part of for PJ Library? It doesnt seem to fit any of them.

Why were you holding out on us?? Free sounds right up our alley no?

Actually this list is for summer reading programs for kids, it does not provide free books... unless I am missing something.
