We are a non-profit organization made up of local volunteers who have been supporting the Burlington Public Library since 1964. Our purpose is to raise awareness of the library among residents and encourage everyone to enjoy all that the library has to offer.
We believe that a strong library benefits the people who live here at every stage of their lives. The Friends of the Library uses fundraising efforts to bolster the town budget in order to expand library programs and services. The generous donations we receive significantly contribute to the library’s ability to:
- Acquire a diverse collection of books and media in various formats, including large-print, e-books, audiobooks, interactive Vox books for children, and magazines
- Sponsor museum passes which provide patrons with free or discounted admission to 18 attractions across the state
- Offer access to Hoopla, a digital library with thousands of audiobooks, e-books, movies, TV shows, comics, and music that patrons can stream or download on their devices
- Host an impressive lineup of over 250 social, cultural, and educational activities at the library throughout the year
We invite you to join us! The first step is simply to visit the library and sign up for a library card if you don’t already have one. If you do have a library card, make the most it and borrow a book, stream a movie, or attend an activity; the possibilities are endless! If you want to become more involved and help the library, consider becoming a volunteer or donor. We have a great small-town public library where you can make a big difference!
