Mission Statement

The Burlington Public Library’s mission is to be the best small-town public library we can be through our exceptional service, relevant resources, as well as cultural, social, and educational programming for the community.


Board of Library Directors and Library Policies

The Burlington Public Library is governed by a nine-person Board of Library Directors. Members are appointed by the Board of Selectmen for four-year terms. The Statement of Responsibilities for the Board of Library Directors can be found here.
