All Aboard! Summer Reading 2019

This May, Orem turned 100 years old!

This summer we’d like to travel back in time on the new Orem Express train to experience the history of Orem for ourselves. In order to have as many as possible join our journey back in time, talk to your friends, family, and neighbors and start assembling passengers for your train cars. All ages are invited to participate as long as each car has at least two and does not exceed ten passengers. Join us at the train yard (just outside the library) on June 3–5 or any time after that to couple your train car to the Orem Express. Library staff will be on the platform to help you register your passengers.

Along the way, we predict that our train will need lots of maintenance, repairs, and upgrades. Having the technology and fuel needed to keep the train running will all depend on your successful completion of challenges which will earn you badges that you can redeem for prizes, a round trip ticket to the summer reading escape room, and entries into the finale prize drawings.

Come to the library often to see how many train cars have joined the Orem Express train and how the train is holding up. You can add to your train car’s progress as you earn badges by reading books, attending library programs, and complete other challenges that fulfill the requirements for the badges on read.orem.org.
