Library Homebound Services

Salem Public Library provides library services to full service card holders who are unable to visit or use the library because of disability, extended illness, residence in a care facility, or advanced age.

Operation Bookshelf (OBS) is the name of the library homebound services program. OBS users may borrow up to 20 items per month including:

  • Regular or large print books
  • Audiobooks,
  • Magazines

OBS is a partnership between the Salem Public Library and the Assistance League of Salem-Keizer.​ Salem Public Library staff collects the items you request and prepares them for delivery. Assistance League volunteers deliver items to you once a month.

If you would like to know more about this service, contact the OBS staff at the library.
