With over 300,000 items in our collections, you’re sure to find something to love. Beyond our books, magazines, and audiovisual materials, we have some special collections you won’t want to miss:  


Lucky Day Collection

Lucky Day

Looking for a new bestseller but don’t want to wait for your hold to come in? Check our Lucky Day collection at both locations. Lucky Day books cannot be placed on hold or renewed and never go to other MCLINC libraries to fill holds. If it’s on the shelf, it’s yours to take out! Thank you to the Friends of the Abington Township Public Libraries for sponsoring our Lucky Day collections.



Graphic Novels Collection

The Abington Free Library has one of the most extensive adult graphic novel collections in Montgomery County—and it’s growing! Stop by today to check it out. Have a suggestion on a book or series to add to the collection? Stop by the Information Desk and share it with our librarians.
