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.
