The L.P. Fisher Public Library is one of Woodstock’s prized community assets. Situated at 679 Main Street in the heart of town. It was designed and constructed early in the 20th century from part of the fortune that Lewis Peter Fisher, Woodstock’s first mayor, left for the civic betterment of the town. In the early 21st century, the L.P. Fisher Public Library is both a heritage building owned by the town and a busy working library, part of the provincial library system.
An expansion known as the Thompson Centre was added to the back of the building in 2014. This is now the main entrance into the library from the parking lot on Chapel Street.
It also houses two specialized collections: the local historical and genealogical reference books and manuscripts of the W.O. Raymond Room, and the Dalton Camp Canadiana Collection, both named for and in part provided by writers whose roots were in Woodstock.
