Thank You!


As I retire after 15 years as the Library Director in Burlington, I want to say thank you. I am grateful for the time I have spent in this community.  I have benefitted from the reputation of an amazing staff who serves this community so well, from the support of the Town Administration and the Town Government who realize how much a strong library benefits the community. All who served as members of the Board of Trustees in this time have been there to offer support, advice, and direction as we planned for the future of the Burlington Public Library especially in light of the changing roles of libraries of today. The Friends of the Library have worked hard to provide the resources needed to provide programs, museum passes and other things to enhance the library. The business community and groups and organization in Burlington have always supported the library. I especially want to thank the community for your support over the years and the value that you put on this great resource here in Burlington.  I will miss all of this and all of you!  


60 Hour Readers


These students participated in the Burlington Public Library's Summer Reading Program "Reading A World of Fantasy" and accomplished 60 Hours of Reading during the summer. They are all Reading Champions and the Youth Services staff wants to congratulate them on their accomplishment. Great job everyone!
