Oxford EarlyON - Story Strolls

Story Stroll Page Header (3)

Readers on the Move!

We are pleased to be partnering with the Woodstock Public Library and the Woodstock Downtown BIA to bring you a self-guided story stroll!  Use the Story Stroll Map to find your way through the pages of our holiday story!  You will start at the Woodstock EarlyON building (75 Graham Street) and meander downtown to find the rest of the story tucked into the storefront windows of the participating merchants before completing the story at the Woodstock Public Library.  The Story Stroll will be available from December 1st to December 30th.

We challenge you to take pictures of you and your family enjoying these activities and tag us on social media @oxfordearlyon and use #oxfordstorystroll

Ox on the Run

Ox on the Run is our mobile library project that brings library programs and services on the road and directly to the residents of Oxford County. Find our “pop-up” library at playgrounds, community events, markets, and fairs from June to September. When parked we will provide access to wifi, help with library resources, library card registration, storytimes, crafts, and activities for all ages - a mini library on the run! Our goals are to bring our services to more of Oxford, and connect county residents to our services and programs. Look for our friendly staff, and our mascot Ollie the Ox, across Oxford all summer long!
