Charlene Benjamin, President

Charlene M Benjamin, serving as Board President, is a long-term lover of books and libraries. She spent many hours reading in her hometown library in New York, and many more with her children (now grown) in Butler’s library.

During her career as a wage earner, she managed teams, projects, and programs across North America, the U.K., Eastern Europe, India, and China. These experiences provided her with knowledge about how a service organization can deliver quality within the constraints of a budget.

Now retired, she has time to focus on working with the Library Board, village residents, and the library staff to help ensure other families can have those same excellent experiences with their hometown library.
