Fundraising for a New Library Building

Fundraising Reaches the $5M Mark .. and counting!

In July 2022, the Belmont Library Foundation and the Library Board of Trustees were thrilled to share the news that the Belmont Library Building Project received an historic $2 million grant intention from the Belmont Savings Bank Foundation, bringing fundraising for a new library building to a milestone moment – $5 million and counting.  The $5 million in available funds and pledges – restricted for the construction of a new library building – will offset the amount of public funding required for the project and reduce the financial impact on Belmont residents.  To read more, see our letter to the editor here.
