Library will ask Belvedere for estimated $600,000 for expansion
Nine months after it secured a $600,000 contribution from the town of Tiburon, the Belvedere-Tiburon Library Agency plans to ask the city of Belvedere to chip in toward the library’s ongoing expansion. The Library Agency, which oversees the library’s operations, will present its request for funding at the Belvedere City Council’s March 9 meeting, which begins at 6:30 p.m. at Belvedere City Hall, 450 San Rafael Ave. Library Agency board President Bill Smith and member Tom Cromwell did not respond to emails asking how much money the agency would be requesting. Belvedere City Manager Craig Middleton said he didn’t know the amount of the request. However, a condition of the Tiburon Town Council’s funding approval last June was that library leaders request the same amount, $600,000, from Belvedere.
