Burlington Library Summer Hours and May Basket Fundraiser Results
The Burlington Public Library will soon be operating at its summer hours.
From June 19 through September 4 the library will be closed on Sunday. The Saturday hours will also be reduced to 10 a.m. through 2 p.m. starting on June 25.
The library also recently concluded its annual May Basket fundraiser for the Friends of the Library.
According to the library the fundraiser, which featured baskets donated by local businesses, groups and individuals, raised almost $5,800.
“Almost 60 people were present for the basket drawing, some going home with a basket or two,” a notice from Library Director Lori Hodgson says.
Those who were not lucky winners of a basket did have an opportunity to win a door prize and many went home with one of these smaller prizes.
“We want to thank those who attended the event, all who purchased tickets for a chance to win and especially those who donated the baskets,” Hodgson wrote. “Without these generous donors we would not have this successful fundraiser. Do take a look at our website where you can see the baskets and their donors as well as the lucky winners.”
