Kudos: Library seeks names for its bronze lions

The bronze lions outside the Burlingame Public Library are in need of names.

The library’s board of trustees, along with the Duncan Trust, which donated the statuary in honor of the library’s centennial, has launched a Name the Lions contest, now in progress.

Symbolically, lions are the guardians of the gates of knowledge, therefore names should reflect that importance. Entrants may choose to name one or both statues.

The deadline for submissions is Sept. 15. Winners will be chosen by the board of trustees and announced at a centennial kickoff event on Oct. 19.

Entry forms are available at both library branches in Burlingame. The main branch is at 480 Primrose Road; the Easton branch is at 1800 Easton Drive. Both branches are accepting the entries.

For more information, call  the reference desk at (650) 558-7444.
