I lived in Putnam for a year, so I tend to think I know the Quiet Corner fairly well.

But again and again, I'm proven wrong.

On a recent drive through Woodstock, I found three historic libraries - and three whole sections of town - that had entirely eluded me before that crisp fall day.

The North Woodstock Library building was originally a schoolhouse.

The May Memorial Library in East Woodstock is across the street from the East Woodstock Common, a miniature town green with a gazebo. It's also just around the corner from this adorable post office.

The West Woodstock Library is connected to the restored 1820 John F. Williams Law Office.

The Library was founded in 1806, and the Law Office housed its collection in the 1930s and 1940s.

There's more about Woodstock's libraries here.

And, I finally created a "Libraries" tag, so every post I've written about a Connecticut library can be found here.
