Get a Library Card

Students can register for their own library card! Even if you don’t live in Center Township, you can get a card as long as you attend school at Centerville-Abington Schools. A parent or legal guardian must show proof of address and sign for financial responsibility. Learn more here.

Students age 13 or older may be eligible to apply for a limited access card without an adult sponsor. This is handled on a case-by-case basis. Please speak to the Youth Services Manager or Director for more information.
