Ferguson Library's Bookmobile Back on the Road
The Ferguson Library’s Bookmobile is back on the road, visiting parks and other community locations in Stamford Saturdays and Sundays during August and September. See https://fergusonlibrary.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/Bookmobile-AugSept-2020.pdf for the schedule.
The Bookmobile has not had a regular weekend schedule in the past. The new weekend service, which allows the Library to bring books out into the community, is generously funded by Susan and Edward Greenberg. Because of COVID-19, the Bookmobile is not currently visiting preschools and other early learning facilities during the week.
The public is not currently allowed to board the Bookmobile, but visitors can browse through books set up outside and borrow materials. Free WI-FI is also available in the vicinity around the Bookmobile while it is parked.
The Ferguson Library first began Bookmobile service in 1940 and has operated it continuously since then, bringing books and library services throughout the Stamford community.
The Ferguson Library is Stamford’s public library system, consisting of the Main Library, DiMattia Building; the Harry Bennett Branch; the Weed Memorial & Hollander Branch; the South End Branch and a traveling Bookmobile. It provides free and equal access to information, ideas, books and technology to educate, engage and enrich the Stamford community. For more information visit www.fergusonlibrary.org.
