Library Auditorium The need for an auditorium space at the Orem Public Library continues to be very real. 951 programs last year with attendance of over 62,000 patrons Over the course of the last year, staff has pursued value-engineering advice and professional recommendations to continue to look for ways to reduce project cost. The facility has also been included in discussions and planning about the City Center block and potential redesign or remodel process of the area. Library Auditorium As library and community advocates and as a Citizen Advisory Commission, we are appreciative to the City Council and staff for their efforts to move the library auditorium project closer toward completion. We strongly believe that such a facility would benefit the community for decades to come.
