What better place to read than a library – and 31 Stamford teens did just that last month to raise $2,100 for the Ferguson Library. Their “Read a Book, Save a Library” event was held at the Harry Bennett Branch on March 25, a release said.
The event was run by T-MAD (Teens Making a Difference), the library’s teen advisory group. Members group collected donations and sponsorships, then came to the branch after it closed at 6 p.m. and stayed until midnight reading.
T-MAD collected $1,858 the night of the event, and the remaining funds were donated
Stamford children got to sing, dance and use their outside voices Wednesday afternoon at the Henry Bennett branch of the Ferguson Library when Marcia Louis visited. With songs and storytelling, Louis made sure all of the kids enjoyed themselves.
“My job is not to have a little fun, my job is not to have medium fun, my job is to have big fun,” she told the kids at the beginning of her show. With a wide array of musical instruments, including guitars, a harp and conga drum, and easy dance steps to follow, all the kids were able to keep up with Louis.
