The Woodstock Public Library district has two primary missions: - To facilitate learning and self-education for the community. - To encourage all children to develop an ongoing interest in reading and learning.
The Library will select, organize and circulate books, periodicals and other resource materials and media necessary to these primary missions. The Library will promote, on an ongoing basis, a community-wide awareness of the Library’s resources.
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.
