The Burlington Public Library serves residents of Burlington and surrounding towns. Any Wisconsin resident is eligible to obtain a Burlington Public Library card to check out materials, use computers, and more.
The library is a member of a catalog consortium with all public libraries in Racine, Walworth, Kenosha, and Rock Counties, allowing patrons to use their Burlington library card at any of those libraries, or request materials from those libraries for pickup in Burlington.
The library owns 59,000 volumes and subscribes to 141 periodicals. It has an audio collection of 2,400 books on CD and MP3 players, 1,200 music CDs, as well as a collection of over 6,300 DVDs. The library also hosts a collection of about 3,100 large print books. About 180,000 items are checked out from the library each year.
Sixteen Internet stations are available for public use, as well as word processing computers and general computer databases. Statewide library consortia provide full-text periodical access through Badgerlink, and extensive e-book and downloadable audiobook access through Overdrive.
The library offers many monthly programs like book clubs, children’s storytimes, crafting sessions and more. See what’s happening at your local library by visiting www.burlingtonlibrary.org and following us on Facebook.
