Salem Public Library staff and our partners are managing many changes as we prepare to temporarily move to 1400 Broadway NE while the Main Library at 585 Liberty St. SE is renovated. One thing is not changing—our commitment to our community and to providing friendly, welcoming service accessible to all.
The Main Salem Public Library at 585 Liberty St. SE will have its last open day February 2, 2020 before closing for construction.
Salem Public Library at Broadway will open February 18, 2020 at 1400 Broadway St. NE, to serve during construction, offering:
- Browsing collections for Adults, Teens, and Children
- New books and other materials
- Hold pick-up and assistance with placing holds
- Public-use computers, scanners, and printing for all ages
- Wireless internet access
- Weekly storytimes
Online library services—access to the library catalog and downloading of eBooks and audiobooks—will be available throughout the move and construction phases.
The West Salem Branch, 395 Glen Creek Rd. NW, will be open and maintain services throughout the move and construction phases.
