  • I went there as a tourist on Monday and Monday is their day off. They close on Monday. I couldn't give you more than what I know. This library ought to be the one of the safest libraries in the nation...  read more »
  • I love this library. Helpful staff, great selection(you can even check out art). Always a comfort to spend time in this library. 
  • I love The Salem Library. Part of The Chemeketa Library system, the Salem Library is a multi-level literary paradise with onsite coffee and food service! Great location for a quick meeting or for a qu...  read more »
  • My two little girls love going to the library. They especially love the discovery room where they can plan and learn as well. It's also a good way for them to practice responsibility by keeping track of their books.
  • Library is great for what it's worth although outdated. 1 star rating because of metered parking... Really Salem? Metered parking at a library? You should be encouraging people to come to the library. Charging for parking at a library is ridiculous. I'm always worried whether or not my work will be finished before the timer runs out; if it does, I have to pack all my things, my laptop, run to parking, insert more coins if I have any, then go back in and unpack again, maybe at a different location because someone took your old spot... Yes that's happened more than once...
  • Great library and a little book store. The metered parking is annoying but I understand the reason. They don't want people to park there all day and not use the library.
  • Fun, educational events and respectful librarians.
  • Metered parking. Old timer system with coins....don't forget your change. So no validation....meters enforced til 6pm. Sundays free!! Can walk downtown...but why with the paid meter, that's why it's so dumb. Beverly Hills library in California still gives you free validation....!!!! Someday maybe Salem will acknowledge that they are an overpriced city that is in shambles. Wake up salem!!!! Stop catering to every retiree!
