Community Programs and Performances

Do you have a good idea for a library program?

Orem Library Program Application

Thank you for your interest in sharing with the Orem community. The Orem Public Library’s mission is to bring people and information of all kinds together, and programs, including those from the public, represent one of the tools we use to fulfill this mission.

Due to limitations on staff time and space, the library cannot host every proposed program. Applications will be considered keeping in mind scheduled library programs and events, staff schedules, as well as how well the proposed program or performance fits with the library’s program philosophy.

Your application will be considered by the members of the library outreach staff and you will be notified of its decision. If your program proposal is accepted, the library will publicize your event with newsletter and online posts, as well as posters. Library staff will set up, host and provide support for your program.

Thank you again for your desire to share with our community!

Please fill out the following application and return it as soon as possible to Lori Stevens at lastevens@orem.org​ , or call 801-229-7385 with any questions.
