History of the Library
The new Belvedere-Tiburon Library opened in 1997. The opening was the culmination of years of hard work by talented and dedicated local citizens who wanted to bring world-class library services to their community. The full history of the Belvedere-Tiburon Library can be read in First a Dream: A Community Builds a Library by Jo Ann Ridley. The book may be ordered directly from or purchased at the library circulation desk.

About the Library Building
The Library was designed by the firm of Bull, Stockwell, and Allen. The architectural style is that of the 19th century railroad yard in Belvedere. The site is part of the landfill of the 1890s done to create the railroad yard. The interior spaces allow for flexible use and adaptation to technical advances, while creating a comfortable environment for children and adults. Windows frame views of the marsh lands and Old St. Hilary's Open Space preserve." (visit link)
