"Mr. Glass is a journalist, but also a storyteller who filters his interviews and impressions through a distinctive literary imagination, an eccentric intelligence and a sympathetic heart."

The Burlingame Library Foundation is proud to announce its new Speaker Series, Guess Who's Coming to the Library! featuring experts and original voices in the arts, current affairs, science and technology. These events include authors, artists in all creative realms, community, government and business leaders, as well as innovators in a variety of fields.

The Burlingame Public Library will host the evening's event in its historic and beautifully renovated Reading Room, in the main library branch building in downtown Burlingame. 

 

BIG BOOK sAles

Each spring and fall, the Burlingame Library Foundation hosts a BIG BOOK SALE in the Lane Room. The Burlingame Library Foundation raises more than half of its operating revenue directly from the sale of donated books and media. These funds, along with the proceeds from other events and direct donations, allow the library to continue its full scope of community programs and contribute substantially to the collection budget, as well as, community access to technology. The first BIG BOOK SALE of 2018 is April 20 - 22.  Do you have books you'd like to donate?
