We are excited to announce that the Orem Public Library will be changing library systems in December! This means that our library catalog will have a new look and some new abilities. Changing systems will allow us to offer better service to you with several new or improved features, including the following:

  • Improved searching abilities
  • Recommended titles based on your feedback
  • Better accessibility
  • Robust Spanish language translation
  • Mobile-friendly website
  • Phone app for Apple and Android devices

For those who love our current system, rest assured that the new system will still include your favorite features, including searching for your favorite items in a large number of ways, logging into your library account, putting holds on items, and making and browsing lists. 

The image shows an example of what the new system will look like. The system is still in development, so a few things about this image will change, but we are excited for the new catalog’s functionality.

For those who worry about change, your librarians are here to help! We are working to make the transition as smooth as possible, and our staff will be available to answer your questions when the new system is in place. Watch for future blog posts that will describe a few of the cool new features we’ll gain with a new system, as well as a few things to watch out for.
