The Charlestown Boys and Girls Club is located at 15 Green Street in Boston and is a ten-minute walk from the Community College T-stop on the orange line train. 

This is a great opportunity for any student interested in community service, in general; the Boys and Girls Club, more specifically; and in the work that goes into developing and maintaining a small library collection.
