Proposed Library Expansionexpansion
The Board of Library Directors and Staff have been working on a proposal for a much-needed library expansion. The Connecticut State Library has awarded our library a $1,000,000 construction grant to help defray cost.  A public hearing and a referendum will be held in early 2015.

Please feel free to stop by and check out the proposed plans. A display of the expansion is at the library. An informational flyer was mailed to all town residents. If you didn't receive your copy in the mail, we have more here at the library.

These are exciting times for the Town of Burlington and the Burlington Public Library. Join in the excitement!
