Friends of the Library

Friends Book and Plant Sale

The Friends of the Abington Township Public Library is a 501(c)3 comprised of dedicated volunteers who are committed to keeping Abington libraries strong.  

The Friends fundraise to support the work of the Abington Township Public Library through the BookCellar, their bookstore on the ground floor of the Abington Free Library, special book, plant, and jewelry sales, and membership campaigns, as well as grants.  

The Friends help to fund critical programs and resources for the library, including our Museum Passes, the Lucky Day Collection, new books, movies, computers, and library furnishings. The Friends support amazing library programs for children, teens, and adults, including the Author Speaker Series.
