New Library Building Project

Progress floor plan design presented at May 19, 2019 Open Public Forum meeting

In 2016 the Town commissioned a feasibility study to evaluate how to address the ongoing needs of our library.  The study evaluated renovating the existing building, renovating the existing building with an addition, and building a new library on the site of the existing library.  It was determined that building a new building on the existing site best met the needs of the Town of Belmont.

At the end of 2017 the Library Building Committee was appointed by Town Moderator Mike Widmer to begin design for this new library building.  In 2018 the Building Committee worked to hire Daedalus Projects, Inc as the Owners Project Manager and Oudens Ello Architecture as the Architect.  Currently the Building Committee is conducting the Schematic Design, which is the first phase of building design.  A series of public forums are being held in 2019 to invite the community’s thoughts and feedback on the new library.

Information regarding the work of the Library Building Committee, and its members and meetings, can be found here on the Belmont Public Library website.
