85th Annual Woodstock Library Fair

Once a year, the annual Library Fair offers people a new lens on their lives, a brief respite from the workaday world of commerce. The 85th Annual Woodstock Library Fair’s theme is “Dreamworld”.

Imagine walking into a familiar place – the library grounds – and all at once you are sharing the most wonderful dream with everyone else in Woodstock.
