“Nothing brings more joy to my ears than hearing a young child learning to read out loud.”
Dr. Susie Beris
Creating life long learners is one of our main missions. Spaces for reading, children programs, STEM and STEAM skills are available for children of all ages – and their adults too! Our staff is more than happy to help you find some books for even the most hesitant reader.
Our picture book room transforms into a community space, holding up to 60 people. Come in and enjoy story time, craft programs, glitters and glue. In the evening it can be used as a meeting space for the community and adult programs.
Our Maker Space is stocked with items that inspire thought, inquiry and creativity. From craft supplies, motors, LED’s battery packs and LEGOS and LITTLEBITS. Stop by and check out our make and takes and take a little piece of our Maker Space home with you.
“Providing the means to both educate young people and expose them to cultural resources in an inviting environment is what Dr. Beris has enabled with her extraordinary gifts to the Burnham Library.”
“It is said the meaning of life is what you make happen.”
