All true bibliophiles know that there is no experience more relaxing than wandering the shelves of a library and spending time basking in that “Old Book Smell”. But for many of us, it’s not enough to just visit the library, we’d much rather experience the library for all that it is. There is perhaps no better way to do so than to try your hand as an Orem Library volunteer!

Here at Orem Public Library, we love volunteers! In fact, we could not possibly accomplish all that we do without the help and support of our community. Whether or not you are trying to learn about libraries for a future career, spruce up your resume, or are simply looking to fill your time, we welcome all interested in volunteering.

During the spring and summer, the library is looking for volunteers to assist in programming and outreach department. Volunteers will help with our art gallery desk hours and our Summer Reading program. You might help answer questions about art and the library, assist with sign-ups, help hand out prizes, or even help run our Escape Room!

Library volunteers must be 14 years or older and will undergo a background check, free of charge. If you have an interest in volunteering please visit the volunteering portion of our website, or contact Holly Grierson at 801.229.7247 and
