The Friends of the Burnham Library is a non-profit organization comprised of volunteers dedicated to supporting the Burnham Memorial Library in its mission to provide information and support life-long learning and enrichment within the community. Through various fund-raising efforts we enhance the library’s ability to provide programming, youth services, books, audio-books and learning programs that would not otherwise be within the library’s budget. We welcome community members who are interested in joining us in our efforts to ensure that the Burnham Library, a mainstay of the community since 1942, continues to be a vibrant resource where the people of Colchester come to gather, learn, and enjoy.
For more information, see the Friends Brochure or contact us to find out when our next meeting or project is happening.
2022 Friends of the Burnham Memorial Library Annual Appeal
The Friends of the Burnham Library Annual Appeal is now under way, and we are seeking your support!

Over 200 children and teens signed up to be Summer Readers.
From June-August, we welcomed 505 people at 28 Storytime sessions.
We hosted 15 paid performers for teens, children and families with an attendance of over 350
