The Burlingame Library Foundation raises more than half of its operating revenue directly from the sale of used books & media of all types. The majority of the books & media are donated from the general public. A portion are ex-library books removed from the collection.
Books are available for sale every day that the main library is open. The book sale area is immediately behind the circulation desk.
In addition, the Foundation holds regular sales events throughout the year.
