Memorial Day Reads

The Abington Community Library will be closed on Saturday, May 26, Sunday, May 27, and Monday, May 28, in observance of Memorial Day weekend. The Library will be marching in the Clarks Summit Memorial Day Parade on Monday, May 28th and you are invited to walk with us! We will meet at the flagpole at the Clarks Summit Elementary School at 10:30AM to line up.
