Our library's mission is to enhance the lives of our community members by providing access to information and promoting reading and literacy.

Welcome to Our Library


Salmon Public Library serves Lemhi County. We are located on the banks
of the River of No Return near the bridge, right next door to City Hall
and Salmon's City Center

winning book,
The Oblate's Confession,
a novel that is placed in the Dark Ages, England.

HUGE thank you to Jodi Sommers & Family for once again volunteering
to lead our Summer Reading program. Your planning and creativity is
astounding each and every year, always making whatever theme we are
given a huge success. You have to be here to see exactly how much time
and effort it all takes. You are truly a gem to our library community!

Many thanks also to all of our guest speakers, readers &
