History of the Woodlake Branch Library

woodlake original library
Six Woodlake residents petitioned the County for a library deposit station in 1911, and a station with 50 books, was placed in John Day’s Post Office and store in December, 1911. Between 1913 and 1920 it was moved to the Schelling Drug Store, the Woodlake school, Mrs. Gordon Day’s house, back to Day’s Store and to Blair’s Store. Then, in 1920, the library moved to the newspaper office (The Echo) and telephone exchange. In 1942 more space was required and the library branch moved to a building owned by Roy Davis. Mr. Courtney McCracken offered to donate the money needed for construction of a library building. In 1966, the Courtney McCracken Library was dedicated.  The building housed the County Library Branch, the High School Library and a study hall.  The complete cost of the structure and all furniture was paid for by Mr. McCracken.
