April 8-15 is National Library Week. The public is invited to stop by the Abington Community Library April 12 for PA Forward Day. See displays and get to know the five literacy building blocks PA libraries now stand upon. Cake cutting at 2:30 p.m.

In April at the Abington Community Library, the theme is Financial Literacy. Visit the monthly book display for information on this relevant topic. And on April 5, "Keeping Your Small Business in Business: Making Sense of Dollars and Cents" will be co-sponsored by the Abington Business and Professional Association, University of Scranton Small Business Development Center, and the Library, with light lunch provided by Pennstar Bank.

Don't miss the Friends of the Library Spring Book Sale April 14 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Clarks Summit United Methodist Church. The Teen Leadership Committee will hold a bake sale at the same location.

That same day, the Presbybop Quartet with Bill Carter (piano), Al Hamme (saxophones), Tony Marino (bass), and Tom Whaley (drums) will play jazz standards, original tunes from eight CDs, and some improvised chamber music at the Library from 1 to 3 p.m. This is part of Second Saturdays at the Library Series and is free.

Also part of our Second Saturdays at the Library, Laura Craig Galleries exhibits "Select Works" by gallery artists including: Susan Scranton Dawson, Abby Warman, Thomas Wise, Gary Kresge, Brian Keeler and Nancy Ruch Kim.
