Each spring and fall, the Burlingame Library Foundation hosts a BIG BOOK SALE in the Lane Room, raising more than half of its operating revenue directly from the sale of donated 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. Do you have books you'd like to donate?
