About Us

The Children’s Services Department of the Salem Public Library is here to support families with children of all ages and abilities who want to encourage a love of reading, a curiosity about the world, and a focus on learning. The Salem Library is a wonderful place to bring your family for a variety of services, programs, and educational materials. Our aim is to promote equal access to all materials regardless of age, race, religion, economic status, or physical challenge.

We review, select, and purchase resources that focus on the needs of children from birth to 11 years old. Library resources include board books, picture books, beginning readers (“I Can Reads”), fiction (chapter books), biographies, nonfiction, graphic novels/comics, audiobooks on CD, Playaways, read-alongs (book kits), music CDs, and DVDs. You’re welcome to come and explore our AWE computers and enjoy our comfy “rocker” reading chairs, and an assortment of early literacy toys for use in the Children’s Services area. 

Children’s programs make the Salem Library a vibrant and engaging destination for families. Storytimes for babies, infants, toddlers, and preschoolers are in session throughout most of the year, and our Summer Reading Program kicks off after Salem City Schools dismiss for summer break and runs through the end of July. We also offer seasonal programming such as a LEGO Club, Library Lab after-school science program, and special events for families.

 Bring your children to the Salem Library!
