The Woodstock Library is a branch of the Multnomah County Library in southeast Portland, Oregon, United States. The library’s origins date back to 1908, when the people of the Woodstock neighborhood established a reading room at the Woodstock Fire Station, which soon became one of fifteen “deposit stations” (packing crates that turned into two-shelf bookcases and could hold up to 50 books each). The Woodstock collection began as an assemblage of children’s books and was housed within a public school. In 1911, the station was replaced by a “sub-branch” library offering more books for adults and children, but without the reference works and services available at regular branches. The collection moved into a larger facility in 1914, which became a full branch in 1917, offering additional resources and services.
