I was staying in Stamford for a week and enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere of the library. You can buy a coffee in the adjoining Starbucks and sit and read within the library. Staff were all very helpful and polite. Thank you

The Ferguson is a local fixture, good staff, good collection of anything that comes to mind, books, records, video and a very helpful staff. I look for excuses to go there.
