1,000 Books before kindergarten

Join the Abbotsford Public Library for a rainbow of reading with our 1,000 books before kindergarten program!

Starting September 2015, any child that has not entered kindergarten may sign up for our new reading program. When you sign up you will receive a folder with book tracking sheets inside. Record the title of every book you and your child read together starting the day you sign up. Bring the pages in every 100 books to receive a small prize and advance to the next color on our rainbow reading wall. At 1,000 books, your child may choose a book to keep at home as a prize for completing the program.

100 Years of Library Card Club!



The Abbotsford Women’s Library Card club celebrated their Centennial on Friday April 24th.

The club was founded in January of 1915. A group of women got together once a month to play cards, have lunch, and raise money to support the library and other organizations within the community.  The club continues to this day, meeting at the Abbotsford City Hall to play cards and donating materials to the library on a regular basis.
