The Friends of the Burnham Library is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, volunteer membership organization dedicated to supporting the activities and mission of the Burnham Library. The Friends provide funding for programs, museum passes, equipment, and services that would not be available through the library’s operational budget.

Mission Statement

The Purpose of the Friends of the Burnham Library is to stimulate public use of the library, provide financial assistance to the library, and sponsor programs for all members of the community.

We welcome your participation as we plan future events for the benefit of the library. If you enjoy meeting new people and you like the idea of helping your library community (and by extension, the town in which you live), the Friends group invites you to join us.

To become a Friend, contact the library or email friends@burnhamlibrary.org

Membership Information

The Friends membership letter will be in your mailboxes in November and we hope that you choose to renew or become a Friend of the Burnham Library this year.  Our funding for the Library will now solely rely on this fundraising effort and we hope that you consider this when making year-end tax decisions.

Membership dues paid to the Friends are distinct from contributions to the Library’s Annual Appeal. Friends’ membership dues provide funding for programs, museum passes, equipment, and services that would not be available through the library’s operational budget.

Benefits Of Membership

  • Previews of Friends’ library book sales
  • Invitation to a members’ event held in February in honor of Library Lovers Month
