Library stop: North Woodstock Public Library, CT

North Woodstock Library
223 N. Woodstock Rd.
Route 169, just north of Route 197
Woodstock, Connecticut 06281

Woodstock is in the north-east corner of Connecticut, near the Massachusetts border. We took a drive there last month because we used to go to Woodstock, IL to buy our pumpkins when we lived in Chicagoland and thought it would be fun to checkout a town with the same name. 

The library was closed when we happened to be driving around the area, but of course we had to stop to peak in the windows and take some pictures!

According to Library Technology Guides this library has 9,626 volumes, circulates
9,719 items per year, and serves a population of 7,854 residents. There are two more public libraries in Woodstock.

The view from the road.
The building was originally a school.
Built in 1843. The building became a library in 1950, but the North Woodstock Library Association was formed in 1854.

Love this big field stone stoop.
