The Abington Free Library has been recognized as a PA Forward Silver Star Library, First Level, in Financial Literacy.  

PA Forward Press Release 

Financial Literacy:  Abington Township Public Library believes that financial literacy is one of the main cornerstones to building a better future. Forty-one percent of U.S. adults give themselves a low grade. As part of our PA Forward and Star Library participation, we are committed to helping all of our guests achieve an A+ in financial literacy.  

How? We intentionally curate our eResources and physical collections and select relevant programming and partnerships to meet financial literacy needs at every life stage. Whether you are a child figuring out how to manage your allowance, searching for a job, researching the cost of a college education, looking for recommended books on personal finance, or a small business needing to manage financial disruption and identify new opportunities during a pandemic, we are working diligently to be your bridge to credible sources and trusted experts.   

Feel free to email us at askabington@gmail.com to share your financial literacy need or success story. Your questions or testimonials can help others and inform our curation efforts.  Let’s move PA Forward together!
