Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Benbrook Library organization was established in 1986. In 1988, the Friends opened the Benbrook Library in a building donated by the City and the Water Department. It was operated entirely by volunteers. A petition drive was held by the Friends to form a library district. The initiative succeeded, and the citizens voted a 1/2 percent sales tax to operate a Benbrook Library District. The sales tax has allowed the library to be professionally staffed and governed by a library Board of Directors.

Congratulations to our Volunteer of the Month for May 2019 at the Benbrook Public Library: Leilana Martinez!

How long have you been volunteering at the library? Leilana has been volunteering at the library since January of 2017.

Why did you want to become a volunteer at the library?  Leilana needed to receive hours of volunteering for National Junior Honor Society. We are so glad she chose us to do her volunteering at our library!

Who are some of your favorite authors and what types of books do you like to read?  Leilana enjoys reading books by authors J.K. Rowling, David Liss, and Stephen King.  She likes reading science fiction books and historical fiction.

What do you enjoy most about being a volunteer?  Leilana enjoys volunteering because it keeps her busy and she likes learning about the books in the library.

 

Leilana, we are so glad you are one of our volunteers here at the Benbrook Public Library! We LOVE our dedicated volunteers!  The library wouldn’t be the same without volunteers like you!

 

 

The world is hugged by the faithful arms of volunteers.
