Children are encouraged to experience learning as play in the Salem Public Library's Discovery Room. Since 1986, the Discovery Room has offered children from birth to age ten a place where hands-on exploration and curiosity fuel early literacy and STEM learning in a colorful engaging format, with themes that rotate quarterly throughout the year. The Discovery Room is currently closed until further notice due increasing COVID-19 infections. In the meantime, here are some fun ways to bring the Discovery Room experience home.
