Burlington Public Library, Central Branch

Library services began in Burlington in 1872, with the Central Branch opening in 1970. Acting as a community space, the library is free for everyone and offers books, movies, music, magazines and more! During Doors Open, come and see the public makerspace, Burlington’s local history room, and tour the library – which includes a behind-the-scenes tour of the book circulation area.
