ABOUT ATLANTIC BOOK LIMITED
Atlantic Book Limited was founded in Fredericton, New Brunswick in 1972 by Lloyd & Lois Russell, and incorporated in 1974 as a Library Wholesaler, serving the needs of schools & libraries throughout Atlantic Canada.
Some of you may still remember the Atlantic Book Van which toured Maritime schools, showcasing the best books for school libraries in a convenient setting.
Over the decades, ABL became a leader not only in the book trade, but also the classroom audio-visual market and became a leading supplier of this commodity, representing some of the best products of the era, such as Califone, Dukane, Eiki, Draper & Bretford.
Lloyd & Lois’s son Lloyd Jr. grew up working with his parents in the family business and today, with 45 years of experience in the book trade, undertakes most of the day-to-day operations of the company.
His longevity in the marketplace positions him at the forefront of the Wholesale Book Industry in Canada.
