Celebrate National Library Card Sign-up Month in September by getting everyone in your family an American Fork Library Card!  We are constantly working to provide more resources to our community, and library cards are the best way to take advantage of all of them.  Here are a few of the things we offer.   

Books:  Children, teens, and adults can find all kinds of reading material for personal enjoyment, reading practice, research, and exploration.  We have over 180,000 physical books, but we also carry e-books, audiobooks, magazines, and Kindles loaded with Battle of the Books titles.  Plus, we have multiple copies of certain selections in our Book Club sets.

Other items for checkout:  Do you want to see the latest movies, try out a discovery kit, or explore new games?  You can do it for free through the American Fork Library!

Tutoring:  The Learning Center is open every Monday-Thursday from 3-6 pm.  It’s a great place where students get help with reading, math, or any other subject.  Walk-ins are welcome, and we also offer one-on-one sessions with reading volunteers.  The Learning Center also offers an opportunity for adults to practice their English skills on Wednesday & Thursday nights.  Give the Learning Center a call for more information or to volunteer: (801) 492-3593.

Storytime:  We share literacy activities, games, songs, fingerplays, and books at our weekly storytimes, starting September 10.  This is a great way for parents to practice the 5 pre-literacy skills with their little ones!  Remember to talk, sing, read, write, and play every day!

Programs:  School-aged kids are welcome to participate in STEAM, Lego Club, Magic Tree House Book Club, and music classes offered through American Fork Youth Choirs.  Teens and adults can join us for Game Night, Mental Health Awareness, craft classes, and our annual Writing Conference.  We have Family Night and Movie Night for all ages.  Check out our calendar to see what’s going on each month!

We want to hear from you!  How has the library served you and how can we do a better job?  Fill out our quick 8-question survey and let us know. Then stop by the library for a treat so we can thank you 😊

See you at the library this September!
