Our mission as the local public library of Marshfield is to bring people, information and ideas together to enrich lives and build community, and we do all of this free of charge. Throughout the pandemic, need for library materials and services has been as strong as ever, and the Ventress Memorial Library has continued to serve our community safely through new and creative programs and services.
We have prioritized making high-interest digital materials available for patrons, including ebooks, audiobooks, and more, in addition to all the physical items patrons can checkout, from books and DVDs to video games, board games, kindles, and more.
Over the past year, we’ve also engaged people of all ages through our innovative and high-interest programming. We have also helped many adult community members access 2020 tax forms and sign up for their COVID-19 vaccinations. Below are some highlights:
And that doesn’t include the more than 300 reference questions and book recommendations we help patrons with each month. And we are continuously seeking even more ways to expand our ability to serve Marshfield as we recover from the ongoing pandemic.
