Woodstock Public Library | We Love Reading, when the Hometown All Stars baseball team isn’t on the field playing a game you can find us at the Woodstock Public Library reading. Yes, that’s right, we love to read and the Woodstock Library is the perfect place to read regardless of your age.

On a chilly Wednesday evening in November of 1913, a group of Woodstockers gathered at the Fireman’s Hall to learn first hand about the newly formed Woodstock Club. Founder of the experimental Byrdcliffe Arts Colony, Ralph Whitehead, started the club along with Charter members Walter Weyl and Dr. Mortimer Downer, to set up a nurses fund and to create a library. How would the club pay for these services? By charging members yearly dues of $1.00, and the club would buy a moving picture machine and hold picture shows once or twice a week at the Fireman’s Hall.
