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.

Volunteer of the Month

Congratulations to our Volunteer of the Month for November 2019 at the Benbrook Public Library: Nick Castillo!


How long have you been volunteering at the library?   

Nick has been volunteering with the library since February 2018. 


Why did you want to become a volunteer at the library?   

I was looking for a volunteer opportunity in the community as part of the National Honor Society and found out the library needed teen volunteers.   


Who are some of your favorite authors and what types of books do you like to read?  

Stephen King is one of my favorite authors and my favorite book of his is The Shining.  I enjoy reading thriller books. 


What do you enjoy most about being a volunteer?   

I enjoy that I’m able to give back to the community in my own small, little way.  


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

How beautiful a day can be 

When kindness touches it!
