A 30-minute set for this ongoing fundraiser and community-building event for the 100-plus-year-old library.
The Woodstock Library was established in 1913 in a converted barn. A budget of $40 paid for some bookshelves, a few chairs, and a coal stove; the books were donated.
Volunteers from a broad range of backgrounds brought the Woodstock Library into existence. This community pool of spirited workers has been replenished with each generation. After the change to public library status, The Friends Of The Library of Woodstock, New York, Inc. was formally organized in May, 1990, and incorporated four months later. This all-volunteer group sponsors events for raising funds, such as the Library Fair, and the Book Sale, and also supports programs of community interest as the Library Forum.
