Thank You Library Supporters!

We at the Belmont Library Foundation greatly appreciate your foresight, compassion, generosity and efforts on behalf of our fundraising campaign for a new Belmont library building. Because of your support, our 20+ year pursuit of a new facility was capped on November 8th by receiving a successful YES vote for the new library building.  The design of the library project is now moving ahead.  To see all of the latest updates for the project, please visit the Library Building Committee page here on the Library website.
