About the Friends

Our Mission

The Friends of The Ferguson Library is a non-profit, volunteer organization. Its mission is to promote community support for the priorities, programs and activities of The Ferguson Library.

The Friends, established in 1979,  contributes to the Library’s growth and development through membership fees, donations, book sales and the efforts of our volunteers. Two book shops are open during library hours at the Main Library and the Harry Bennett Branch.  

The Friends provide funding for Library programs such as summer reading, book discussions, film programs and cultural events. In addition, the Friends provide funding for library staff development and scholarships.

The Friends sponsor special events such as a yearly Literary Competition and Author Series. The Books for Babies program supplies a free first book to every baby born at Stamford Hospital.
