We Can Deliver the Library to You

Salem Public Library provides delivery services to library card holders who are unable to visit or use the library because of disability, extended illness, residence in a care facility, or advanced age.

Operation Bookshelf: Home and Individual Delivery

Operation Bookshelf (OBS) is the library homebound services program for individuals. OBS users may borrow up to 20 items per month including:

  • Regular or large print books
  • Audiobooks
  • Magazines
  • Music
  • DVDs

OBS is a partnership between the Salem Public Library and the Assistance League of Salem-Keizer. Salem Public Library staff collects the items you request and prepares them for delivery. Assistance League volunteers deliver items to you once a month.

If you would like to know more about this service, contact the OBS staff at the library at 503-588-6089 or email library@cityofsalem.net.

Pop-Up Library Program: Senior Living and Group Setting Delivery

The pop-up library program serves adult care homes, assisted living centers, and senior living communities. Facilities and homes may receive a delivery of items for in-facility circulation or to supplement existing library collections. Items are delivered in a simple pop-up cube. Deliveries occur monthly and include 25-50 items. Items are checked out with a full service, facility library card.

If you would like to know more about this service, contact the OBS staff at the library at 503-588-6089 or email library@cityofsalem.net.
