Friends of the Library

Beliefs & Mission Statement

Friends of the American Fork Library recognizes that libraries are fundamental to a free society and serve as a community hub where all have access to knowledge and opportunities for self-improvement and economic growth.

American Fork Library's mission to make a positive, transformative difference in the lives of all patrons is accomplished through the following core activities:

  • Literacy: Plan and administer reading, writing, language and technical literacy programs for children and adults
  • Collection and Resource Development: Develop library collections which meet patron needs and interests, including print and electronic materials, technology, art, historical and non-traditional items
  • Community Partnerships: Collaborate with a variety of individuals and organizations to connect patrons to community resources and provide educational and cultural opportunities which enrich patrons' lives
  • Outreach: Extend resource accessibility to all community members
  • Facilities Enhancement: Create a safe, inviting and dynamic space

As a volunteer organization, Friends of the American Fork Library coordinates fund-raising and grant applications to support the library in accomplishing its mission.
