Woodstock library hosting several upcoming events

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 www.heartlandbc.org 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 www.woodstockpubliclibrary.org or by calling the library.
