In addition, you can order a library book online by clicking on the following link:
Then click on the round circle “Catalog”, and then do a search. When your search is completed and the book is found, click on “My Library Account” yellow tab at the top of the page and complete the rest of the information. I found it a bit confusing when I tried to order a book online but don’t give up because ordering books, CD etc online is very convenient.

The 1870 Art Center:

The 1870 Art Center provides a working environment for 28 professional artists and a cultural resource for the community. The Gallery presents eight exhibitions each year. Usually half show work by studio artists, and the other half show work by regional artists. Open Studios occur twice a year: as part of Silicon Valley Open Studios in May, and again in November.
A little history of the Center: In 1977 the Belmont City Council established the Twin Pines Art Center under the auspices of the Parks and Recreation Department. The City built the Senior and Community Center on the Twin Pines Park site in 1985, and the artists moved to 1870 Ralston (the former Barrett School) and reopened as the 1870 Gallery and Studios. In 1997 the name was changed to 1870 Art Center to reflect its role in the community.
Gallery Hours: Thursday - Sunday, 1-5 p.m. Phone: 650-595-9679
