The children's room is closed today. We apologize for the inconvenience.
The Friends of the Ventress Memorial Library are hosting a special cookbook sale in the library’s lobby throughout the month of October. Stop by and browse through a large variety of cookbooks, featuring many different cuisines. Prices range from $1-$5 per book, so there are plenty of bargains to be found! All proceeds benefit the library.
The Friends conduct ongoing sales of books, movies, and more in the recently renovated Jean Christensen Book Nook. Located to the right of the Check Out Desk, the Nook is stocked with both adult fiction and non-fiction selections. Children's books are displayed outside the Children's Room, and a bookcase in the nearby corridor houses books for tween and teen readers. Sales of special themes or formats are held periodically, so visit frequently to see what's new!
The Friends greatly appreciate donations of gently-used books, movies, music, or games. We cannot accept textbooks, encyclopedias, VHS or cassette tapes, or anything in poor condition. Donations should be brought inside to the library's circulation desk. Please call ahead for large-scale donations. [At present, we are accepting donations on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. Please limit yourself to one bag or box per person per day.]
PLEASE NOTE: Books left in the bins in the library parking lot are collected by outside organizations and do not benefit the library or the town of Marshfield.
