Merry Library

StamfordPlus reports that the Ferguson Library bookstore will reopen on December 11th. As a next-door-Starbucks regular, I have noticed they are making great strides in the space, adding new bookshelves and eliminating salmon-colored walls. The full renovation is likely to be completed by spring. For a slideshow showing pictures of the $14 million renovation, click through from my earlier post here.

For those of you who don't know, the bookstore is particularly fabulous because of their ridiculously low prices on used-but-perfectly-fine books. The article suggests, and my memory confirms, that prices generally range between one and five dollars. The store's rebirth features spiffed up furniture and greater options for children.

The Harry Bennett branch up on Vine St. has a small but good used book section. It works in a pinch! I bring my books there.

Most soft cover books are $1, most hard-cover books are $2. Probably works out to be cheaper than the inevitable late fees for me if I borrow.
