About The Owners

Dane and Elizabeth Ferguson have proudly called Grand Forks, ND home for nine years now.  Both Concordia College graduates of Moorhead, MN, they share the love of the written word, art of films, and creativity of toys.  Elizabeth, a former full-time elementary school teacher at Wilder Elementary School in Grand Forks, and Dane, an entrepreneur, want to share their passions with Grand Forks!  After noticing there was a great void of services of books, creative toys, and media in the area, they came up with an idea together with the help of Dane's brother Taylor, a business to serve the community was the result.

For people of all ages, the Fergusons guarantee they'll find what you're looking for!  With attention to detail and service second-to-none, our book specialist, help you find what you're looking for. No request is too large for our staff.

Dane and Elizabeth are also proud parents of their now 3 little boys Xander Dane, 7 years old, Asher Jeremy 5 years old, and Cooper Ray Michael, 2 years old!  They are members of Calvary Lutheran Church., Dane is an active member of the Grand Forks Chamber of Commerce and young professionals and member of the Grand Forks School Board.

Fundraising & Bag Sales

Are you a school? Charity? Non-Profit? Ferguson Books is here to help! We have a new way to help charities in our local communities support their organization. Known for our bag sales, we have the supplies and foundation to draw in a large customer base for your fundraiser. 50% of all bag sale revenue will be directly donated to your organization. In addition to the money or donations made by the bag sale, your organization will also receive 10% of the store's revenue the day of your fundraiser. 

All we ask you provide is a team of workers to help setup, tear down and manage the tables during the sale. This way someone from your organization is there to explain what your fund raising for. We find it's also a good way to increase sales.

Love Ferfuson Books! They have a great selection of books; classics, vintage books, new releases, children's books, childhood favorites of mine (example being the Sweet Valley series) and a healthy selection of Non-Fiction for the person who is looking to expand their horizons.
