Support the Library

Make a Financial Contribution

Our Library depends on the generous support and ongoing involvement of residents and local businesses. We welcome gifts and multi-year pledges to the Belvedere-Tiburon Library Foundation, and will ensure that your donation is used according to your instructions – whether you wish to support collections and programs, fund the Library Endowment to secure future services, contribute to the Library Expansion, or simply allow us to apply it where it is needed most. 

Through the Foundation, you will receive a tax deduction for the year of your donation. Please make checks out to the Belvedere-Tiburon Library Foundation and send them to the Executive Director, 1501 Tiburon Blvd, Tiburon, CA 94920. You may also make an online contribution to the Library via eTapestry by clicking the Donate Now button on this page.

Donate Your Old Vehicle
Thinking of buying a new car? Get a great tax break and do the library a wonderful service by donating your old car to the library's Appeals for Wheels Vehicle Donation Program.

Support the Library Endowment
To maintain the present high level of services, we must increase the Library's endowment. Local tax receipts cover only three-quarters of operating costs. Our Endowment fundraising is free of administrative costs, except for printing and mailing, as was all fundraising to build the library.

Corner Books
Corner Books is a new initiative of the Belvedere-Tiburon Library Foundation. Featuring gently-used books at reasonable prices, Corner Books is located on the Boardwalk at 1550 Tiburon Boulevard. Staffed by volunteers, all proceeds raised by Corner Books help support the Library collection.

Donate Materials
Donating gently-used books, CDs, DVDs, and audiobooks to Corner Books helps raise money for the Library. We are also able to save money when we add donations of recent and popular titles directly to the Library collection. For details on donating to the Library and Corner books, please call Corner Books at (415) 789-5000 or the Library at (415) 789-2665.
