Love Libraries, Love Benson Library

When in doubt, go to the library.

The only thing you absolutely have to know, is the location of the library.

Friends of Benson Library (FOBL) was established in 2011 to save Benson Library from closure.

Our longer term objective is to ensure the continued presence of a public lending library in Benson and to promote its use. We reached an agreement with Oxfordshire County Library Services (OCLS) and our purpose is to:

  • Raise funds towards staff costs (currently approximately £4,000 per annum) to ensure there is always a professional member of staff on duty whenever the library is open (currently 30 hours per week).
  • Recruit and organise volunteers to accompany the staff at all times for those same hours
  • Support the library by working with OCLS to improve the library service and experience for the community.
