Library Mission
The mission of the Belvedere-Tiburon Library is to provide library services that will encourage and support a literate, enlightened, and cultured community. This mission will be fulfilled by providing, to the greatest degree possible, free and equal access to knowledge, information, and ideas through the library's resources and programs in a setting conducive to learning. 

The Belvedere-Tiburon Library Agency (BTLA) was formed in July 1995 as the legal governing body of a new independent community library. Its seven person board has three Trustees appointed by the City of Belvedere, three appointed by the Town of Tiburon, and one by the Reed Union School District. The BTLA is charged with all the responsibilities of any public agency - personnel, collection of tax moneys, budget development, operation and expenditure of money for the Library's development, operation and maintenance.

Library Development

The Library opened its doors on April 13, 1997, and is an independent community library created by the citizens of the City of Belvedere and the Town of Tiburon. The development of the Library is an ongoing study in community building, local values, public spirit, and long-term commitment.
