Looking for that unique, independent party item? Not interested in hosting a party? Come shop with us at the At Home Party Marketplace from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, March 4 at the Abington Community Library. Browse products and get your questions answered by knowledgeable consultants.

Stop in throughout the day and enjoy free admission as you check out unique items from well-known companies. Shop with representatives from Tupperware, Paparazzi Accessories, LuLaRoe, Shaklee, Stampin’ Up, Mary Kay and Younique. As you peruse the products, enjoy a stress-free environment with no pressure to buy.

Though it is cold outside, the library is already looking forward to a busy summer and our popular Summer Reading Clubs for children and teens. We need your help to continue offering exciting and programs throughout the summer as funding we have relied upon for many years is unavailable to us this year. Would you consider giving a special donation to help us meet this need? Checks (specify memo “Summer Reading Club”) or cash will be accepted at the main circulation desk. Thank you for your support! Contact the library if you have questions or would like more details.
