Teen After Hours

Ready to go on a reading adventure? Starting August 8, join us for a special Teen Reading Challenge at orem.beanstack.org as we read The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien. Complete the book by 11:59 PM on September 16 to earn a LOTR button and virtual tickets that can be entered into prize drawings for awesome Tolkien merch.

Tween Events

Tween Any Time Activity

Did you know that 467 different bird species have been recorded in Utah? And some of them have been spotted in the library! Stop by the children’s desk to learn how to identify some of Utah’s most recognizable birds. Find and name ten different species soaring, hiding, or nesting in the children’s wing and earn a prize.

Tween Scene

Celebrate Tolkien Week and Bilbo’s birthday with a visit to Middle-Earth! Get your fill of adventure as we solve riddles in the dark, race barrels through an obstacle course, and enjoy other games, crafts, and treats inspired by The Hobbit. Register at bit.ly/oplhobbitday. For ages 8–12. Middle-Earth attire welcome.
