Burlington Public Library

Serving Recovers communities:

Burlington Public Library has many resources available to support refugees in our community. Together with HMC Connections, we offer weekly settlement services and Homework Help for newcomers. On Thursday nights, our New Appleby branch hosts an ESL Conversation Circle. In addition, we have items in Arabic, ESL materials, an international newspaper database, and more. We also are a terrific source of community information!
