Welcome to Woodstock Public Library

LIBRARY INFORMATION

  

The library's collection includes non-fiction, biographies, reference materials and audio books on CD’s.  A vast selection of fiction, non-fiction, mystery, biography and large print books are shelved on the ground floor for easy access.  An elevator connects all three floors of books for your convenience.  For children and juvenile readers, there is a specially designed area that houses their books. 

Special interest programs available include:
Books to You--This program is for those patrons unable to come to the library.  Volunteers pick up and deliver books to their residence.  For more information, call the library at 540-459-2774. 

Operation Paperback--Donated paperbacks (that are clean and in good condition) are shipped regularly to our military forces overseas and veterans.  We are now receiving donated audio-books for troops. We cannot use youth or children's paperback books.

Meeting Room--Also available is a meeting room that accommodates 10 people and is available free-of-charge to patrons during library hours.  To reserve the room, visit the library or call 540-459-2774. 

Current Objective--Our current objective is to address the needs of our patrons in this digital age.  We have computerized our card catalog and provide three computers with internet access for public use.  We continually expand our holdings and continue to reach out to those who are unable to come to us for their reading material.
