Home-based Materials Delivery Service

To ensure that all member of the community have access to library materials,  we are offering Home-Based Delivery Service.

Inter-Library Loan (ILL) from outside of the Mid-Hudson Library System

For research articles or items that you cannot find in the Mid-Hudson Library System the Woodstock Library provides Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service.

ILLs are only provided for patron’s with accounts in good standing, if you have overdue or billed materials we will not allow requests.

ILL loans are provided by courtesy loans from other institutions. These items have a specific due date and may or may not be possible to renew, the owning institution sets the parameters. These loans must be picked up and returned to the Woodstock Library only.

Patrons who are unable to follow special lending rules will no longer be eligible to borrow Inter Library Loans as they jeopardize all patron’s access to these loans.

If you have questions about any of this please contact the librarian.

Public Bulletin Board

Our Bulletin Board is now inside the library to the right as you enter, next to the copier. Bulletin Board postings are governed by the Public Bulletin Board Policy.

Equipment Loan

The Woodstock Library has some equipment available for local non-profit organizations to use. This is governed by our Policy Governing Equipment Loan. Please contact the Library Director to inquire about availability.
