Your Support Matters

A great public library is a community treasure  

Funds from the Burlingame Library Foundation benefit every library user. They allow the library to adopt new technology and respond to the evolving needs of patrons.  They also extend and strengthen the library’s role within the community. While the City pays for the library’s basic expenses such as salaries and materials, Foundation support supplements that funding in areas where the library deems it will have the greatest impact. The Burlingame Library Foundation contributes to:

  • Innovative programming for all ages (tots, teens, adults and seniors)
  • Summer reading programs
  • Expanded hardbound and e-book collections
  • Access to modern technology
  • State of the art library workspaces

The sustaining partnership between the Burlingame Public Library and the Burlingame Library Foundation is strong. The Foundation is fully committed to funding the programs and projects that make the Burlingame Public Library a true community treasure.

The Foundation values your support. No gift is too small or too large! Please consider making a financial contribution or volunteering your time. To learn about the benefits of joining the Escoffier Society, click here.
