Library Bookstore & Cafe

The Burlingame Library Cafe is now open during regular library hours.  Have a cup of coffee or tea, a sandwich or a sweet while you check out the newly renovated Main Library.

Right next to the cafe in the library is the Burlingame Library Foundation bookstore.  Adult fiction, children's picture books, young adult, biographies, travel, history, finance, health, self-help, the arts, cookbooks, cd's, dvd's, and audiobooks are just some of what's available. Everything is under three dollars and all proceeds from book sales directly benefit the Burlingame libraries.

Also, your book, dvd, and cd donations are always welcome. Just bring them to the information desk at the entrance to the library. Large donations may also be scheduled for pick-up (email info@burlingamelibraryfoundation.org)
