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.
