As a locally owned and independent bookstore, we have the largest selection of pre-owned books available in the region. Our inventory also features a unique toy section, a variety of new and pre-owned media and titles by local authors. Stop in and see us today!
Dane and Elizabeth Ferguson lived in their Grand Forks, ND home for nine years. 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 and beyond! 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 Ferguson's 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.
Robert Sutton, or just "Bob" has been a fixture in Ferguson Books-Grand Forks since, well, inception. Bob is the victim of mission creep in the most positive way. Beginning as a customer, volunteer, part-time associate, and now as a part-owner, Bob's passion for books are as deep as the Red River in Canada! Former Air-Force Bob has collected books while he lived in Oregon, England, and since the early 1990s Grand Forks, which he calls home. The Fergusons are glad to have him as he is to have us to fulfill his lifetime dream of running a bookstore. If he's not organizing the numerous shelves at the store, he's working at his OTHER full-time job as a correctional officer acting as its unofficial jail librarian. Bob has been a pivotal partner in Fergusons past, and will continue to be well into the future-he does plan to live to be 115 years old.

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 and we are looking for partners. Known for our bag sales, we have the supplies and foundation to draw in a large customer base for your fundraiser. 5% of all bag sale revenue will be directly donated to your organization.
All we ask you provide is a person(s) during the sale to help during the sale or promote the event internally or externally through marketing and social media channels to your organizations supporters, members, or followers. This way someone from your organization is there to explain what your fund raising for. We are also looking for communities around the tri-state region to create pop-up shop bag sales on a one-time or even regular basis. We have been in the following communities and are looking for more:
Rapid City, SD
Detroit Lakes, MN
Sioux Falls, SD
If you want to be notified via text the next time we are in these communities, text FERGS(city) to 63211. For example, text FERGSMANKATO to 63211 if you live in Mankato.
