Belmont Savings Bank Hosting Children’s Book Drive
Children’s books will be donated to Benton Library in Belmont
BELMONT, MA – October 12, 2016 – Belmont Savings Bank today announced it is having a Children’s Book Drive to benefit Benton Library. Residents can bring in any old or unused children’s books to the bank’s main Belmont branch before October 31, and the books will be donated to the Benton Library.
The Benton Library is a nonprofit, independent community library in Belmont run by volunteers and supported entirely by staff donations. The historic site was designed in 1892 as a chapel for the Belmont School For Boys, and was eventually purchased by Col. Everett C. Benton in 1903 who made the chapel available for Belmont public meetings. After his death, his family offered the chapel to the town to use as a library.
Belmont Savings Bank is located at 2 Leonard Street in Belmont Center. It will be accepting book donations during normal hours of operation.
