Welcome to Burnham Memorial Library

The town's website is experiencing intermittent issues with access for some internet providers. We apologize for the inconvenience, and are working to resolve it.

Trivia Takedown - Nov. 18

Due to popular demand, we are holding another trivia contest here at the library, on Tuesday, Nov. 18 at 6:30 pm. Come with a team or solo! Topics will include literature, science, history, pop culture, and more! Snacks will be provided, and the winning team will receive a prize. Register at our site.
