OREM LIBRARY Volunteer Opportunities

The Orem Public Library loves volunteers! In fact, we could not possibly maintain our collection or provide the hundreds of quality programs each year without help from volunteers like you.  Those interested in volunteering on a regular basis must complete an application and pass a background check.  We also accept individuals and groups on a one-time basis.  Our volunteer needs range from dusting shelves and washing books, to data entry, book repair, and children’s storytime.  For more information, please contact Tammy Starr at (801)-229-7384 or tdstarr@orem.org. You can also see volunteer information on the library’s website.
