CLARKS SUMMIT — The Abington Community Library announced the support of Weis Markets, Inc. as part of the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program. The funds awarded to the library will be used for this year’s annual Battle of the Books, to be held in August.
Participating students in grades 4-12 in the Abingtons will receive personal copies of the books used in the event. Preparing for the competition provides children with an opportunity to think critically, socialize at the library, make new friends and prevent the ‘summer slide’ that occurs when children do not read during their school break.
As an Educational Improvement Organization, the Abington Community Library is attached to the Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC) of the State of Pennsylvania.
This program invites businesses, such as Weis Markets, Inc., to donate to the library as a benefit to themselves as well as to the Library. The commitment can be for one year or two, and the application process is simple; a one-page application is all that is required. Any company or business that pays corporate taxes to the state of Pennsylvania, can participate. For more information, contact the library or visit bit.ly/1Nhi2Uv.
