Greetings Fellow Book Lovers: In the interest of public health and our staff, The Friends of the Salem Public Library Store (Used Books & Miscellany) is temporarily closing. We will be closed as long as necessary. Rest assured, as soon as we are able we will open our doors for your book needs. We are a small business and there are ways to help us: Shop online at ABEBooks. If you shop at Fred Meyer you can sign-up for the Community Rewards and list the Friends of Salem Public Library (Oregon) as a recipient (you get to keep all the rewards you earn too) – the information is on our Facebook Page and the Website. Monetary donations are always appreciated, via our website or mailed to PO Box 925, Salem OR 97308. We will keep you informed, so keep your eyes on our social media. We will try to have some fun posts along the way. Questions? Email us at SPLFriends@peak.org
In Good Health and Reading The Friends of the Salem Public Library📚📚
Due to the temporary closure, we are not taking donations. Please keep us in mind when we reopen at our new location of 1127 NE Broadway.
Cleaning house or downsizing? Help us continue to support the Library and programs with your good to excellent condition books, art, jewelry, unused greeting cards with matching envelopes, knick-knacks, music and more. Ask inside the Store for more information.
The Friends Board has multiple openings. If you love the Library, want to be active in supporting the Friends and the Library, consider joining the Friends of the Library Board. Next meeting is TBD. Meeting location is in the Library Board Room at the temporary location on Broadway St.
