The Friends of the Abington Community Library would like to thank all of our patrons who supported the library this year by becoming a Friend or by renewing their memberships. Starting in 2017, thanks to an upgrade in the Friend’s computer system, whenever you join or renew, your membership will be good for one full year. Instead of your membership being good only for a calendar year, if you join the Friends in April 2017, your membership will be good through April 2018 or if you join the Friends in October 2017, your membership will be good through October 2018. No matter when you join, your membership dues directly benefit the library. In 2016, from monies raised through dues and from our book sales, the Friends made donations to the library to purchase Microsoft Surface Pro tablets, a wireless printer, and toys for use during story times, as well as providing monies for various library programs. A Friends’ membership also gains you admittance to our Preview Sales, as well as to our Chips Dips and Sips wine tasting event. Registration forms are available at the library, and dues are $10 per individual or $15 per family. Thank you for supporting the library by becoming a Friends member today!
