Join us we renovate, recreate and renew our library, strengthening our century-long commitment to learning and literacy…
For more than a century, the Burlingame Library has been a cornerstone of our community – a place to learn, to read and to share, an institution created and supported by the people of our town. Now it’s our turn to strengthen and renew this vital institution. To remain relevant and vital, our library needs to adapt to the times. Renovation of the building will provide the community with more meeting spaces, greater access to technology, a room for teens, a cafe, bookstore and more.
In light of the Burlingame Library’s ever expanding role in the information age, current spaces are inadequate. People study and use the library differently than they did in the past: they study together, engage with tutors or mentors, and take classes on job hunting, college admissions, computer skills, robotics, and much more. They also make good use of soundproof spaces for conferencing. The Burlingame Library is no longer only a place to search for information; it has become a place for cultural enrichment and lifelong learning.
