KIRKUS REVIEW

Librarians may find a limited curiosity value in this history of the founding of a Free Association Library in the Catskills from the early days of the century through to the present activities of fund-raising, membership drives, the annual Fair, etc. Like other institutions, Woodstock has had its share of troubles and on occasion even a cause celebre, as when 75-year-old Alice Thompson had to retire after 26 years and it happened to be during the McCarthy era, and she just happened to be a Socialist and pension money just happened to be scarce. Then there was that time the septic tank overflowed -- but we won't bore you with the details. . . even if Rogers does.
