BELMONT — The Belmont Public Library recently completed a $26,760 project to clean and repair exterior brickwork, the conclusion of a five year, multi-stage process to protect the historic building's exterior.

“The library is a beautiful and useful institution in Belmont,” said Eileen Gilbert, director. Pendlebury Masonry of New Boston handled the project to clean and repair two sides of the building, using a boom lift to inspect the chimneys. The masons matched the historic bricks and mortar. Local mason Joe Rhodes completed earlier phases of the restoration.

The library is currently open to the public. Curbside pickup is available during all open hours. Visit anytime at
