The Orem Public Library has been a center for lifelong learning since its founding in 1939. Today the Library continues as a leader in the cultural life of Utah County, presenting 850 programs annually, free to the public, including the finest lectures and author visits, writers' workshops, musical performances, dramatic presentations, dance, readers' theatre, puppetry, poetry readings, film screenings and discussions, and storytelling.
The Library’s unique and dynamic programming has included truly notable presenters such as the New York Chamber Soloists, one of the nation’s finest classical chamber ensembles; Pulitzer Prize-winning author Marilynne Robinson presenting for Orem's Big Read; David Holt, national storyteller and 4-time Grammy Award winner, presenting music and stories from Appalachia; internationally renowned Irish tenor Ronan Tynan presenting a master class; and the 8-week series “Shakespeare for Kids” which engages thousands of children each year in these interactive plays. Weekly screenings have aired live broadcasts from New York’s 92nd Street Y and full length performances from the Metropolitan Opera. Film festivals have featured Iranian films, Chinese films, and film noir. Fine art and touring exhibits have presented works by nationally acclaimed fantasy artist James Christensen; regional artists, including watercolorist Lily Havey, with pieces representing her experiences as a child in the Amache Japanese Internment camp; and "Picturing Faith," photos from the Library of Congress depicting religious life in America during the Great Depression.
Recognized by the Utah Humanities Council with the Human Ties Award 2009, and supported by grants from Utah Arts Council, Western States Arts Federation, National Endowment for the Arts, and National Endowment for the Humanities, the Library actively partners with Utah Valley University, Brigham Young University, and numerous local and regional cultural and performing arts entities in making excellent programming free and accessible to the general public.
The Library truly supports and sustains an entire community in lifelong learning; but its current program space, designed to seat 120, is bursting at the seams. Annual attendance has increased by 167% in the last six years, from 21,290 in 2005 to 56,831 in 2011. The success of these programs points to the need for The Center for Story, its amenities and its increased capacity.
