You can check out hundreds of "non-traditional items" at our library! Here is what you can find in the Children's Library:
Literacy Kits are storytime in a bag! You and your children can enjoy books, crafts, songs, fingerplays, and activities together.
Discovery Kits allow you to learn about something new, like playing the ukulele or makey makey circuits.
Kindles are loaded with Battle of the Books titles!
Launchpads (coming soon) have lots of educational games to help children develop their literacy skills.
In our Teen/Adult Section, we have a large collection of games and puzzles to take home and try out. We also have hot spots you can check out for internet access.
We would love to help you if you have any questions! Just give us a call or stop by the library.

"I have fond memories of going to the library when I was a child and of spending long summer days with a good book. I also loved reading to my kids when they were young and have wonderful memories of bringing them to the American Fork Library for story time. Libraries allow us to travel through space and time, to learn and grow, and to become better people. Libraries are magical places! "
