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
on Main Street.


Wednesday, July
8th  is our second Summer Reading Program of the month for
registered Independent Readers, 6 - 12 years of age. The program will be all
about The Hero Within. Meet at the library basement at 1:00 and
be prepared to stay until the program ends at 2:30. Programs always include
guest speakers, stories, projects, crafts and a snack. Bring your tally sheets
of books read and see if you qualify for any prizes yet.
