Everett C. Benton Library

An independent community library

Welcome to the Everett C. Benton Library

The historic Everett C. Benton Library is a non-profit independent library run by volunteers and supported entirely by donations. The library is located at 75 Oakley Road in Belmont, MA, at the corner of Oakley and Old Middlesex Roads.

The Benton Library is now open several days a week: Tuesday mornings from 10am to 12pm and Saturday afternoons from 2pm to 5pm. Starting the first week of October we will also be open Friday mornings from 10am to 12pm. We will increase our hours as volunteers become available.

Look for the OPEN flag!

We will continue to provide curbside pick up; email us at ecbentonlibrary@gmail.com to make a request. Free books will continue to be available in the lobby.

The Benton Library is a lending library with over 7,500 catalogued books including a robust selection of best sellers and mysteries, as well as a wonderful, ever expanding children's and young adult collection. Library cards are free and available to all; you do not need to be a Belmont resident to borrow books. We have computers available for public use and free wi-fi.

The Everett C. Benton Library established itself as a self-sustaining community resource in 2011. It is successful thanks to the many people who are involved in staffing and maintaining the library and to our generous financial supporters. We are grateful to our many individual donors, the Belmont Savings Bank Foundation and the Belmont Cultural Council.

We look forward to welcoming everyone back to the Everett C. Benton Library.
