A fresh new parking lot, curb and sidewalk is coming to the Abington Community Library in May. Check our website, lclshome.org/abington, for dates and possible closings. Please be patient with us during this important project as we strive to continue serving our community while working around the construction.
Thank you for your continued support for the NEPA Match Day initiative. For the second year in a row, the Abington Community Library is one of 25 local nonprofits to benefit from this special fundraiser. For every dollar you give, the Scranton Area Community Foundation will match your gift, up to $1,000. New this year, additional money is available for those who go above and beyond in their fundraising efforts. This means that every individual donor counts.
Visit the Scranton Area Community Foundation website at safdn.org for more information on this great organization dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for all people in Lackawanna County through the development of organized philanthropy. Stop by the main circulation desk and donate to the library before May 5.
Thank you for another successful Friends of the Library Spring Book Sale on April 8 at the Clarks Summit United Methodist Church. The book sale made close to $8,000 and the Teen Leadership Committee bake sale made $130. The Drug Take-Back event was also very successful. Over 27 pounds of drugs were collected. The Library also hosted Communities Matter Day, which included several of the nonprofit organizations that are participating in NEPA Match Day.
