Getting ready for Reading Olympics?

Make a Zine

If you love to make zines, we love to see them. Send in your zines for the library website.  Scan your zine, or drop the paper version off curbside with your contact information. Paper copies will be returned to you. Earn service hours for sending in zines appropriate for the library website.


Writing papers for school?

Your teacher and school librarians are the best starting point for where to find ideas. The Abington Township Public Library can help, too. Use the chat on our website, call 215 885-5180 or email askabington@gmail.com for help finding facts, getting material online, or making footnotes.
