Friends of the Burlington Library

Friends of the Burlington Library

We are an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization dedicated to the support of Library programs and collections. We raise funds through the sale of used books at Book Ends (our on-going book sale located in the library lobby), and through our two annual Used Book Sales. The Friends also support the library with "hands-on" help at library programs--both children’s and adult.

We’re always looking for new Friends! Please join us, and bring your ideas and enthusiasm. Please contact the library if you have any questions about the Friends.
