Abbotsford Family Literacy Day

Hello Abbotsford

We are inviting you to take part in Abbotsford Family Literacy Day at Clearbrook Library and The Reach Gallery Museum by visiting Community Literacy Stations at both locations to enjoy free crafts, treats and prizes. There will be activities for all ages—kids, teens and adults!

Kick off the morning with a free pancake breakfast sponsored by United Way from 9 AM - 11 AM. Breakfast takes place at UFV Clearbrook Centre (directly downstairs from Clearbrook Library). Then at Clearbrook Library, enjoy a fun magic show by Norden the Magician at 11:15 AM. Later, join in for a dynamic storytelling of Under One Rock: Bugs, Slugs, and Other Ughs by Anthony D. Fredericks. The story will be displayed from 12:30 PM – 2:00 PM. Wander at your own pace through a great story about ecological life “under one rock.” At 1:00 PM, listen to narrators from the Abbotsford Children’s Theatre bring the story to life in a dramatic and engaging way.

At The Reach Gallery Museum, participate in hands-on activities exploring the many intersections between literacy, art, history, and culture. Join in for a special painting and literacy activity, take a family tour of the archives, seek out artefacts in a scavenger hunt, make a block print on a special printing press, and more!
