We have been twice for poetry readings. It is a well-kept small building and at least it is fully accessible (unlike much of the town). I frankly can't see why it would be a destination unless you were coming for an event

The staff were wonderful and helped us greatly. The other patrons were in and of themselves most interesting. We have fond... More

Libraries are a must in every civilized community but this one is expensive to maintain for a community the size of Woodstock which is already being taxed beyond the limits of good taste. It does offer some pretty good free services like access internet which seem to be mostly used by a transient population common to the Woodstock scenery but... More

I have been visiting the Woodstock Library since I was a small child and now I continue to visit with my small child...it may not be the biggest library, but it is a literary haven and always friendly faces there...also the annual library fair is lots of fun...

The Library is able to borrow books that patrons request from the large network... More

The library building is absolutely beautiful from the outside! Red brick building in a lovely quad. Very kid friendly (clearly they have an eye on the future!). Inside had polished granite walls, the classic hushed atmosphere and helpful and knowledgeable staff! They also have a nice cd audio book section which came in handy!

We stopped in the library to ask for directions to the Karma Triyana Dharmachakra Buddhist Monastery and were not disappointed when the lady at the main desk provided us with a helpful illustrated local map. We had a quick look around at the library while we were waiting. It didn't seem to be a big library but we noticed that... More

Where your dog is welcome and waits patiently for biscuits at the counter; where the atmosphere is more of a general store in which you can get the latest gossip, news and people watch; a place where you never know who is going to sit next to you at the computer stations....
