Community & Family Night
Join us for Community and Family Night at the Springville Museum of Art for an evening of fun and entertainment every first Monday of the month from 6-8 pm. The evening begins with an interesting and often interactive presentation by a local artist. In the past we have had scupltor Korry Bird, quilter Marsha Harward, Illustrator Bryan Beus, and even a comicstrip artist Todd McAllister. The artist is followed by some form of entertainment ranging from vocal groups to dance and even Karate demonstrations. A hands-on art project led by the Museum’s Art Educators will inspire participants to explore their creative side. The Museum will remain open until 8 pm, to allow visitors extra time to walk through the galleries and enjoy the exhibitions currently on display.

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.

Film Screenings

Catch regular screenings of Hollywood classics, blockbuster hits, and the finest of cinema from around the world each week, Monday at 6:30 PM, Friday mornings at 10:00 and Friday evenings at 6:30 PM in the Media Auditorium.  And don't miss Dr. Dean Duncan's film presentations the second Friday of each month.
