A meet and greet with Jane Schautz was held at the Abington Community Library on Saturday, July 25 hosted by the Friends of the Abington Community Library. Schautz is a founding member of the library.
Schautz was the first vice president of the board that created the library in February 1960. She later served a term as president of the board. Members of the early board were very active staffing the all-volunteer library as well as engaging in almost continuous fund raising. In addition to her service to the library, she was also the first President of the League of Women Voters of Scranton and a director of the Lackawanna United Fund.
