Volunteer at the Library

Volunteers help make Salem Public Library a great place to play, learn, and grow. We are grateful to the 200+ volunteers who support Salem Public Library, helping at special events, shelving books, pulling holds, repairing materials, and more.

Due to the seismic and safety upgrade to the Main Library and COVID-19 restrictions, our volunteer program is currently paused. 

New volunteer orientations will be announced after the renovated Main Library reopens to the public.

Due to increasing COVID-19 infections, the City of Salem has postponed the public reopening of the renovated Main Library and the West Salem Branch indefinitely. A new opening date will be announced later.

Curbside Service is available by appointment Tuesday-Sunday. Library items can be returned any time at the outdoor book drop on the Liberty Street side of the building.

Virtual Library services are available 24/7. Download free eBooks, eAudiobooks, and movies, do research, find information, study and contact staff.
