The Escoffier Society

Alfred Escoffier

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

These generous donors are making a noteworthy investment in the Burlingame Public Library’s future through their philanthropic commitment and involvement with our library.

Thank you!
