VOLUNTEER OR EXHIBIT – Be Part of the Story!

There Are So Many Ways You Can Help …


It’s fun…It’s easy…And it’s part of what makes Bookstock happen!

The truth is, Bookstock is a story written by volunteers. It was the inspiration and labor of love of a handful of Woodstock folk who were all volunteers. Today, close to 100 volunteers keep the tradition going…most of them residents of the Woodstock area. In this way the festival remains “home grown” and continues to be free of charge, open to the public, with a program that appeals to all ages.

Volunteer for an hour, or a day! Sign up with a friend.

Be an Exhibitor

This is a festival…with visitors eager to see, shop, try & buy!

In addition to the Giant Book Sale, there are many other tents filled with arts, crafts, food, refreshments and fun stuff people like to find at summer fairs in New England. What do you want to show & sell? Be part of the story as an Exhibitor on The Green!

Be an Exhibitor. We provide the tent, table & chairs.

Keep Bookstock free and open to all.

Bookstock Literary Festival continues due to the generosity of authors, local cultural organizations, inns, the Town of Woodstock, and individuals like you. Every dollar donated to Bookstock helps continue a mission…since 2009…to introduce residents and visitors of all ages to writers, musicians and artists in the intimate Woodstock Village Green setting, at no cost.

Give used, rare & vintage books for the Bookstock Book Sale on The Green AND in the Norman Williams Public Library year ‘round.
