Teens

The Teen Space at the Abington Free Library is just that – a space for teens! Teens are welcome to come hang out, check out a book or graphic novel, or play a board game. While everyone is invited to browse the collection, when school is not in session the Space is for teens only – no adults allowed!

Tech Help + Art Show

Teens are invited to apply to be a Teen Tech Helper! Help older adults with their tech questions and earn service hours.

Let out your inner artist!
