Welcome to the American Fork Library Newsletter, "Off the Shelf"!
You asked, and we delivered! Our recent survey told us that you would appreciate better email communication from us. "Off the Shelf” allows us to tell you what's new at the library with links for further information.
This monthly newsletter is meant to encourage you to use the library more. You will find out about items you can check out, including new books, movies, audiobooks, literacy kits, and games. You will learn about the large variety of programs we offer. An American Fork library card gives you access to dozens of FREE online resources, including Libby (eBooks and eAudiobooks), Utah’s Newspaper Portal, Auto Repair Source, Rosetta Stone Language Learning, and NoveList. If you have questions on how to use these, please call or visit us so we can help.
We hope to see you in the library and online this year!
