WOODSTOCK – Residents looking to get out of the house for a few hours have several upcoming chances at the Woodstock Public Library.

The library, located at 414 W. Judd St., is hosting three events during the next week, starting with a concert at 2 p.m. Sunday. Cheryl Niemo and the Down Home Boys will play a mix of old time country, folk, bluegrass, country blues and old time rock and roll during "Music Across the Decades," a free concert for all ages.

Two days later, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 11, the library will host a blood drive. Donors should be at least 110 pounds, 17 years old – or 16 with parental or guardian consent – and in good health.

Appointments can be made online at or by calling the library at 815-338-0542.

Finally, at 10 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 13, a local resident will give a talk at the library on why seniors should write their memoirs, and how to do so. Registration for the program should be made online at or by calling the library.
