Everett C. Benton Library

An independent community library


The Benton Library is staffed by volunteers from all walks of life; no professional library experience is required. We can use just about any talent you have!

New volunteers are welcome and will receive training on how to use our catalog system. Each shift has two or more volunteers so you'll always have company. The shifts are 2 1/2 to 3 hours in length. Some of our volunteers come every week for the same shift, some volunteers come as needed; we set up our schedule a month in advance.

We're happy to have all the help we can get. We encourage new volunteers to join. Please stop by to learn more or call the library at (617) 484-0988 during our open hours.
