The Escoffier Society

Alfred Escoffier

This special recognition society is named for Alfred Escoffier, who served as the City Librarian from 1992 to 2009.  The Escoffier Society recognizes the foresight and generosity of individuals who have made a significant lifetime contribution, planned gift, or who have included the Burlingame Library Foundation in their estate plans.

These generous donors are making a powerful statement about the Burlingame Public Library’s future through their philanthropic commitment and involvement with our library.

Thank you!
