Burlington Public Library

Explore – Discover – Learn! That’s what Burlington Public Library is all about.

The Library belongs to everyone in the community and is free to join if you live, work, or go to school in Burlington.

There are seven library branches citywide: six full-service branches (Aldershot, Alton, Brant Hills, Central, New Appleby, Tansley Woods) and a small lending collection in the rural hamlet of Kilbride. Library service began in Burlington in January 1872.

Central Branch is the largest location and houses historical and special collections, a community makerspace, and a computer lab.

We look forward to welcoming you to Burlington Public Library during Culture Days.
