  • Such a fun spot for a solo visit or to meet up with a friend. Plenty to see. Plenty to do free. Beautiful stop to read in a quiet setting.  more »
  • Once you walk into the library you are surrounded by so many books, magazines, CD's & videos you don't know where to look first. The staff are very knowledgeable and so friendly. They can help you loc...  more »
  • Our family visits the Salem Public Library at least once a month if not more often. My kids are comfortable in the children's section & make a beeline for their favorite sections of books: dinosaurs &...  more »

  • We love this library. They always have events going on for kids. We go every week to select new books and always have a great selection to pick from, but you do pay for parking in the parking garage
  • Love the library and the hold system. I have saved so much money on cookbooks by checking here first. I am not a fan of the metered parking, but I do appreciate that I've never not found parking. I also love how fast the self-checkout is!
  • Calm and quiet atmosphere, conveniently located sections with brand new/popular books right up front, as well as excellent suggested books along the wall. Lots of events for kids and adults listed online and in their monthly newsletter. I like that their website is easy to use (there or at home) to locate any book I can think of. If they don't have what I'm looking for I can still see when it will be returned, if another location has it, or have it held and sent to any library in their network. I'm looking forward to taking the kids there this afternoon and can't wait to see what they think of the children's area & bookstore.
  • My only complaint is that there's metered parking monday thru Saturday and if you forget change there's not much else choice for parking on the street. We ended up 4 blocks away one time because I didn't gave any quarters! Other than that we love the library, lots of fun activities for kids.
  • Paying to park is ridiculous!! They do have a good selection of books. The self check out option is high tech and fast.
