The tax rates shall be set to produce the revenue that will be budgeted for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2016. The rates allowed under the existing tax rate ceiling are at or below the $0.2200 authorized by Ferguson voters.

While the library was closed on Wednesday, November 11, we had new sliding doors installed. While we feel like we’re walking onto the bridge to the Enterprise from Star Trek every time we come in, we know that our patrons with mobility issues are enjoying easier access into the library more. This is just one of many changes that have happened to the library over the last several months, from new carpet and computers to new tables and chairs. Stop by and check out the new doors today!
Thanks to the St. Louis Astronomical Society, we have a telescope available for you to check out! All you need is a valid Ferguson library card (no fines or fees over $5) and be at least 17. This easy-to-use telescope comes with instructions and a constellation guide to help you find many items in the night sky. To place a request online, put “telescope” into the search box, and then click “make a request”. You can also call the library and place a request over the phone!
