This is actually in my opinion the best library in Stamford. The books are all well kept. There are new books that anyone would love to read. You can suggest for them to order a book for you free from charge. There are computers on every floor, and printers too. There are so many other things that this library also has. They have a section for document making, a Starbucks attached and many more things to add to its charm.

I like this place very much. It is quiet and staff is always ready to help. My son loves kids section where he can interact with other children and have fun.

I love the Ferguson library so much, especially the main branch. There is always someone helpful and willing to search things for you. As a preschool teacher I make it a habit to go weekly and I'm never disappointed at the children's selection and the children's librarian. The library also offers a variety of resources for families and plans so much fun activities for children. Everyone with a child should look up the children's events and go to an event.

Love it. Great used books section, snobby coffee shop, central location and a very lively area.
