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. 

Mission Statement

The Purpose of the Friends of the Burnham Library is to stimulate public use of the library and provide financial assistance to the library.

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.
