We can deliver the library to you!
Salem Public Library provides delivery services to
library 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: Home and individual delivery
Operation Bookshelf (OBS) is the library homebound services program for individuals. OBS users may borrow up to 20 items per month including:
