Ventress Memorial Library

The Ventress Memorial Library (VML) is Marshfield’s public library. It was founded in 1895 with funds provided by Seth J. Ventress, a Marshfield resident. The library has had many homes over the years, but now proudly resides at 1837 Ocean St in the center of town. Ventress boasts a variety of services for its residents ranging from children’s story and song hours, a Lego Club, teen and tween advisory groups, three different book clubs for adults, Book-A-Librarian appointments, a monthly lecture and concert series, ESL tutoring, and homebound book delivery for patrons who are unable to otherwise access the library. The library’s large collection of materials includes a wide array of children’s materials, teen books and graphic novels, comic books, large print, movies, NYT Bestsellers, magazines, newspapers, research books, wifi hotspots, and more--the library is part of the South Shore’s Old Colony Library Network (OCLN) and patrons may borrow materials from any of the 29 libraries in the network!

VML also has free internet access, computers that are free for public use, printers and a copier for a small fee, a quiet study area, a community jigsaw puzzle, and a variety of databases and e-resources for patron use.
