Welcome to Burnham Memorial Library

The Library's phone system is up and running. We apologize for the outage that we experienced on Friday.

Schedule Notes

  • The Library will be closed on Monday, Sept. 1 for Labor Day.

Colchester Farmers' Market

The Farmers' Market takes place every Wednesday, from 4-7 pm, on the green in front of the library. Stop by for food, crafts, and (often) music. The Market will take place rain or shine, and features local farmers, artisans, food vendors, a wellness table, and musicians. Limited parking is available at Burnham Library, with additional parking at Our Lady of Grace next door. You can find more information at this link.

This week, our musical guest is Bryan Storck & Charlotte Ouellette, with their brand of acoustic indie pop; at our wellness table, Colchester Family Practice will give a food demonstration entitled Healthy School Snacks.

Adult Summer Reading Contests

This summer we've got a series of contests for adults. In Reading Reactions, fill out a ticket for each book you read - we'll pick one winner each month. For Program Round Up, you can fill out an entry for each adult program you attend during the summer. And finally, for Know Your Author, you can match authors with their dust jacket photos to be entered for a prize.
