STAMFORD, Conn. — Friday has been proclaimed “Friends Book Shop at the Ferguson Library Day,” by Gov. Dannel Malloy and Stamford Mayor Michael Pavia in celebration of its 25th anniversary, a news release said.
The book shop was started in 1987 to help raise funds for library programs when a group of volunteers set up a table with donated items, the release said. Today there are two locations: one at the main library and one at the Harry Bennett Branch, and has raised nearly $1.5 million.
“We could not have achieved such success without the support of our loyal customers,” Cynthia Grohoski, the Friends Book Shop manager, said in the release.
In honor of the anniversary both book shops will be giving out a $25 Visa Gift Card, the release said.
The drawing will be held on Friday and people need to apply by Thursday. Applications for the drawing are available at both book shop locations.
