Meet Our Storytellers

Miss Amy

Ever since she was a little girl, telling stories, reading books, playing “imagination”, and writing her own adventure stories have been Amy Carr’s very favorite things to do. Finding the opportunity to do all of those things as a storyteller at Orem Library is a magical dream come true!

Amy has also found magic as an elementary teacher and administrator with degrees from Brigham Young University and has shared her love of literacy at several elementary schools and libraries in Utah County. But her most magical adventure continues to be with her husband Chris and their 5 amazing children!

Miss EJ

EJ Cáceres is a super-duper cool wife and a really awesome mother of 3 children. She loves books, music and outdoors adventures. She volunteered as a storyteller at Orem Public Library for many years, and now loves working here. She hopes to one day become a children’s book author.

You can see EJ storytell at the weekly Bilingual Storytime on Fridays (at 10:30 during the summer and 4:00 through and after September).

Miss Brooke

Brooke Bergin has always loved playing with and teaching young children! She studied at Brigham Young University and earned a degree in early childhood education. She taught kindergarten for a few years before staying home to raise her family. Good children’s books have always been one of her loves (you should see her home library!) as well as music (she enjoys playing the piano and singing).

Brooke is thrilled to be able to share great books AND sing all the fun songs of childhood with the many cute kids who come to storytime here at the Orem library. Her desire is to raise up the next generation to LOVE reading and call it a hobby.
