HISTORY

The library opened to the public in 1975, in a historic building designed by the architect G. B. Dall'Armi for a prison and built between 1879 and 1903. Up to 2001 the library occupied this provisional space with constant commitment to provide adequate services to a town which was developing from the economic, demographic, and cultural points of view.
After long and lively discussions on the best location for a definitive library space, the project for the new building was drawn by the architect Toni Follina in 1996.
The choice of creating a new structure represented an interesting opportunity to develop and enrich the town centre with a public space which is both a symbolic and a real meeting point of different people, generations, and cultures as well as a centre for communication, information, ideas and knowledge. The library is a reference point for a wide range of users as more than 45% of members comes from nearby municipalities. Montebelluna is in a key position in the library system of the province of Treviso, and plays a leading role in the libraries' network "Biblioteche Area Montebellunese".
