Salem Public Library Seismic and Safety Upgrade Project

With your input, we’re designing an upgrade to the Salem Public Library to make it safer in an earthquake, improve accessibility within and around the outside of the building, and make other critical safety improvements, including replacing Library shelving. This work is the direct result of a voter-approved bond that pays for these changes to ensure the Library will continue to be a resource for the Salem community for decades to come.
