february food for finesThe Month of February is Food for Fines Month!

We will be forgiving fines up to $10.00 for a donation of non-perishable food for the Abington Food Pantry. Every donation of non-perishable food will forgive $2.00 in fines. We can only forgive fines on Abington items. We can not take food for items that have been lost.

The APL TAB runs a year round food donation program just inside the front doors of the library. Please consider bringing something with you when you visit to pick up a book, join a book discussion, or attend one of our free programs. And thanks to all of you who do donate, and those of you who donate every week.

Bruins pj driveAbington Public Library Participating in Bruins PJ Drive

APL has teamed up with the Boston Bruins to participate in their annual pajama drive to benefit DCF Kids and Cradles to Crayons. The PJ Drive’s goal is to collect 15,000 pairs of new pajamas for children and teens in need.  “It’s hard to imagine that so many kids and teens don’t know the comforting feeling of putting on PJs before settling down to sleep. We’re happy to be part of an effort to change that” said Abington Public Library Director Deborah Grimmett. APL will be collecting new pairs of pajamas for babies, children and teens.

Bruins forward P.J. Axelsson and his wife, Siw, started the PJ drive during the Boston Bruins 2007-2008 season as a way to give to give back to their community. The couple collected 1,600 pairs of pajamas for Cradles to Crayons which connects with social service agencies to identify specific children in need.

The Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners (MBLC) works with the Boston Bruins to coordinate library participation in the drive.  Libraries from around the state use the Massachusetts Library System’s delivery service, typically used to send books and other library materials, to send their PJs to area collection locations which increases libraries’ ability to participate in the drive.
