Committee Charter and Goals The American Fork Library Board of Directors, i.e. Trustees, is a group of American Fork citizens to whom the public library is entrusted. The board members, or trustees, are the vital link between the library and the community. Trustees act as advocates for the library, evaluate and monitor its progress, and provide the insight and leadership needed so the library can effectively serve the community the trustees represent.
The library board is an advisory board appointed by the American Fork Mayor and City Council and charged with the responsibility of monitoring library operations and advising and making recommendations concerning policies, plans, personnel, the budget, and more.
