Get a Library Card?

How to get a Library Card

Many Patrons will agree their library card is one of the most important in their wallet.  Getting a card is easy. Simply present a photo I.D. and proof of address at the circulation desk.  People living within the Salem city limits pay for library privileges through real estate and personal property taxes.  So, there is no charge at sign-up.  Because folks living outside the city limits don't pay these taxes, they pay the library directly for the same privileges.  The cost is $25.00 for a six-month membership or $50.00 for an annual membership.  All applicants under age 18 must have a waiver signed by their parent or legal guardian.
