Since our founding in 1995,  we have contributed important funding support beyond the City’s library budget, support that results in innovative programming, rich, expanded collections, appealing library spaces and access to modern technologies. We believe a dedicated non-profit partnered with a fine public library can achieve great things!

Coming Events

It's as easy as 1, 2, 3...

Benefit our beloved public library, support local businesses AND do your holiday shopping on THURSDAY,  NOVEMBER 30 at BOOKS INC. on Burlingame Avenue. The bookstore will donate a percentage of all sales made between 6 and 8 p.m. to the Burlingame Library Foundation to support community programs. 

After shopping, stop by SIXTO'S CANTINA on the Avenue or PIZZA MY HEART on Primrose for dinner. Mention the fundraiser and the restaurants will donate a portion of their sales between 5 and 9 p.m. to the foundation. Here's your chance to make a difference in our community. Please spread the good news!
