The Friends of the Abington Community Library recently presented the Library Board with a check for $15,000, representing the proceeds from the 2011 book sale. This money will be used to purchase new library material this year.
The Friends will celebrate their accomplishments at a social, "Chips ‘n Dips ‘n Sips" March 24 from 6 - 8 p.m. at the Library, 1200 West Grove Street, Clarks Summit. Wine from Maiolatesi Wine Cellars will be featured, along with a variety of chips, dips and other appetizers. The event is open to all Friends of the Abington Community Library; memberships will be available that night at the door. Membership cost is $5 for individuals and $10 for families. Reservations can be made by calling the library at 587.3440.

Thousands of books for all ages, DVDs, CDs, and talking books will be available, as well as a bake sale run by the library's Teen Board. A preview will be held April 13 at 5 p.m. for Friends members.
