Shared Reading

We don’t just do summer reading programs here. Our Shared Reading program is designed to help your child keep up the good reading all year-round. The simple program encourages you and your child to become reading partners, as together you set reading goals and talk about what you read. You can create your own reward system for meeting your goals, but the library, through generous donations from local businesses, also provides several prizes for your child to choose from once a month.  Sign up at the Children’s Reference Desk.

Children's and Teen Summer Reading Programs and Rewards

Each year, starting in early June, you can sign up for Summer Reading at the Orem Library!  Kids and teens can earn weekly rewards such as coupons to local restaurants, arcades and museums when they set and meet reading goals. Come to the library often throughout June and July to attend a variety of free programs for kids and teens, including storytimes, games, art workshops and other events.
