About the Burlington Public Library Reading Garden
Reading and spending time outdoors are two great passions for Burlington residents; they are being combined at Burlington Public Library’s Central Branch.

Converting a neglected nook into a public reading garden was one of the Library’s sesquicentennial anniversary projects.

Work began in 2022 during the library’s 150th anniversary celebrations and was supported by in-kind donations from businesses in the community.

The Reading Garden is nestled into a courtyard and is surrounded by views of the Library’s vast collection of books. It features a spectacular variegated beech tree and benches for reading and relaxing.

The garden will be accessible through the library during the branch’s open hours.

It will be open to the public when daylight and weather permits.
