The Ventress Memorial Library is closed until February 13th, 2023! Please see the carpeting closure FAQ for more information.
Looking for a show that isn't available on DVD? Want to browse thousands of movies and TV shows from the comfort of your living room? The library has six Roku Streaming Sticks available for checkout, with subscriptions to the most popular streaming services included. Just plug the Roku into your TV, and you'll be able to watch Netflix, Disney+, Hulu, HBO Max, and more.
All you need at home is:
Patrons from any OCLN library can call us to place a hold on a Roku for pickup in Marshfield. Marshfield cardholders can also place a hold in the online catalog. (Note that different Roku devices have different streaming services. If you place a hold in the online catalog, your hold will be filled by the first available Roku. If you'd like to place a hold on a specific device, please contact us.)
