Our American Fork Library building turns 20 this month! The digital innovations of these years have revolutionized how we find information, entertainment, and social experiences. This beautiful, modern space gave us the opportunity to expand and adapt our resources. It is because of this that we can to continue to connect with you now, despite having to shut our doors.
Our mission is to make a positive, transformative difference in the lives of all those we serve. That means no matter what your background or current situation, our job is to give you access. Access to the library means free use of our space, our collection (both digital and physical), our programs, and our one-on-one professional assistance. Sharing our space is not possible right now, but we have adapted to reach you in other areas. See below to learn how you can continue to use the library even while we are closed, as well as the measures we have in place to keep the public and staff safe and healthy.
I also want to personally thank the members of our community who have reached out to us with support! Re-inventing an entirely new process of circulating materials took a while, and I truly appreciate your patience and encouragement in the meantime. We look forward to serving you in whatever ways we can, now and for many decades to come!

BOOK PICK UP &
Curbside book pick up is now available on the south side of the Library (by our main parking lot). You should receive an email if you have items to pick up. Please note that library staff will check out the items to your account after emails have been sent. This facilitates a quick pick up for you! Items are only being held for 2 weeks before being passed on the the next borrower.
Book drop-off is located at the east door only. Please place your library items in a bag you can leave at the library. Enter the east door, walk directly into the community room, set your bag down, and exit immediately through the exterior door. Returning library items is completely optional at this time. No items are due while we are closed and fines are not accruing.
Borrow and read or listen to free eBooks, audiobooks, and magazines on your device 24/7! Through OverDrive, Libby, and RBDigital you have around-the-clock access to materials, even while we are closed. Download the apps to your phone or tablet, or even use them on your computer. You can get started today! If you have any questions or problems, give us a call or email us and we will be happy to help you!
We have posted a few storytimes to our YouTube channel and will be adding more in coming days. Miss Lori & Miss Kathleen can give your little ones a chance to reconnect with Library Storytime.
We also did a Facebook Live video as part of the State Library's #CabinFeverStorytime that can be viewed on our Facebook page.
