Library Hours and Locations

Discovery Room


Children are encouraged to experience learning as play in the Salem Public Library's Discovery Room. Since 1986, the Discovery Room has offered children from birth to age ten a place where hands-on exploration and curiosity fuel early literacy and STEM learning in a colorful engaging format, with themes that rotate throughout the year.

The Discovery Room is open this summer with activities inspired by our Summer Reading Club theme, Read Beyond the Beaten Path

Visitors must stop at the Children's Corner Ask Here Desk for a bracelet before entering the Discovery Room.

Room occupancy is limited, so there may be a wait at busy times. The room does close periodically for cleaning. The current status is posted on the door for visitors to see.
