Upcoming Closure for Carpet Replacement

The library will be closed December 16th, 2022 - February 2023

The Ventress Memorial Library is getting a long-awaited makeover! This winter all of our 20-year-old carpeting will be getting replaced. This requires a lengthy closure due to the presence of asbestos under the old carpeting. We will close December 16th and reopen in February 2023.

During this period, the library will be completely closed and we will not be able to lend any of our physical items through interlibrary loan. Marshfield patrons will still be able to place holds on items from other OCLN libraries and pick them up at the Duxbury Free Library or another preferred OCLN library.
