We are delighted to welcome Erica Ruscio to Ventress Memorial Library! Below please find Erica's introduction to the Library community. Also, please be sure to check out our exciting Event Calendar - Click Here! - to view our great fall selection of events for children, teens, and adults.

Greetings from your new Young Adult Librarian! My name is Erica, and I will be overseeing teen programming and the teen collection, as well as working with the Youth Services Supervisor, Kelsey, to get the Makerspace underway. I will also be joining the team of amazing reference librarians. I look forward to serving Marshfield residents and helping them discover books, movies, information, and technology.

I also look forward to helping the library grow and supporting its mission to build community. I have experience working in libraries in New York, Massachusetts, and Wisconsin. I have also held various positions in the outdoor industry, including lifeguard, camp counselor, ropes course facilitator, and rock climbing instructor. Now, I am excited to serve the beach town of Marshfield. (I fell in love with the ocean when I lived on a ship and sailed around the Atlantic for three months in college.) I look forward to meeting you all, and I invite you to stop by the Teen Room or the Reference Desk to say hello.

Hotspot Rentals
Ventress Memorial Library circulates more than just books, DVDs and music, we circulate WIFI! We currently have 14 Hotspots. A portable hotspot taps into a 3G and/or 4G cellular network, just like a smartphone does. Once it's zeroed in on cellular data connection, a mobile hotspot can share that connection via Wi-Fi with nearby laptops, tablets, game consoles, or anything that can connect to a Wi-Fi network. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or come check one out for yourself today!
