The Burlington Public Library Friends Foundation is a 501(C)3
organization established in 1982 to enhance the services and use of the
Burlington Public Library. The Library Foundation itself was a
major donor to the fund drive for the beautiful new library facility
that opened in 2006. Donations to the Foundation for the on-going
enrichment of library projects and programs are tax-deductible as the
law allows. A special bequest from Dr. Rudy and Kay Buescher provides poinsettias annually in December.
the past, major grants from the Library Foundation have also funded the
equipment purchased for the library's computerized catalog and
check-out system, the web-server, and computer workstations for
Internet access. Smaller grants have supplied shelving, materials, and
specialized training for staff members. The Foundation sponsors an Annual Genealogy Workshop in April.
