New features

Belmont Library is growing to support the community. Belmont Library will renovate the existing building, add an addition for a total of 15,000 square feet and include parking.

New features will be guided by community input.

Gifts to The Library Foundation will support an interactive early learning space, a mobile creative learning lab, and a study space for teens at Belmont Library.

Centering the community

As one of the busiest libraries in the county, community input will be central to the design process for Belmont. Outreach will focus on the needs of the neighborhood.

That’s why the library and design team will work with Community Design Advocates (CDAs) as part of a paid program. Their mission will be to connect with their communities about how this library can represent them. Community engagement will also include a series of public community events, focus groups, surveys and more. Sign up for updates.
