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.

This booklet, reflecting on the first thirty-five years of the Friends of The Ferguson Library, is dedicated to the 100-plus volunteers who annually contribute about 25,000 hours working in the Friends Book Shops and on our programs and committees. Without them and without the generous assistance of the Library staff, we could not fulfill our commitment of support to the Library.
