Stamford, CT - The Friends of Ferguson Library will re-open its book shop in its newly renovated space on the first floor of the Main Library Friday, December 11. The shop will be closed December 9 -10 in preparation for the re-opening.

The Friends award-winning book shop has been operating in a temporary location across the lobby while its permanent space was renovated. The book shop will once again be accessible through Starbucks, with new shelving, furniture and an expanded children’s section. The shop carries high quality, gently used books for children and adults, mostly priced between $1 and $5. Purchases benefit Library collections and programming, including summer reading clubs, author events and children’s programs. The Friends also operate a book shop at the Harry Bennett Branch on Vine Road.

The renovation is part of the Ferguson’s Main Library renovation project, which is scheduled to be completed in late spring 2010. Work has begun on the second floor of the Library, and all adult computers are now temporarily housed on the third floor. The passport office has moved to its permanent location on the lower level, and the children’s and teen rooms are now in their newly remodeled space on the first floor and lower level. The $14 million project is being funded primarily by capital budget grants from the city and some support from the state and other sources.

The Ferguson Library is Stamford’s public library system, consisting of the Main Library downtown, the Harry Bennett Branch, the Weed Memorial & Hollander Branch, the South End Branch and a traveling Bookmobile. It provides free and equal access to print, audiovisual and electronic resources. Our website,, offers remote access to information and resources 24 hours a day.
