Friends of Abington Libraries

Give the gift that keeps on giving - BOOKS!

 The Friends are community members who work to keep Abington libraries strong.

Friends’ fundraising activities include the BookCellar bookstore, special book, plant and other sales, and membership campaigns.

The group helps fund:

  *  library programs for children and adults

  *  adult literacy program

Library improvements sponsored or funded by the Friends also include the Discovery Garden, outdoor electronic sign and the library’s wireless system.
