Thank you, American Fork!

As we approach the 1 year anniversary of our closure due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the word that comes to my mind is gratitude. It has been a crazy year! There were several moments when it felt like the demands placed on us as a library were overwhelming. We were constantly inspired by your support and appreciation. Our American Fork community proved how much you value reading, library programs, and connecting with library staff.

Here is what you did to show your library love over the past year:

  • Left us thank you notes
  • Used curbside delivery
  • Reserved books and movies
  • Called us to ask if we are open
  • Borrowed games or puzzles
  • Followed our safety guidelines
  • Came to a storytime in the park
  • Dropped off returns a different way
  • Participated in Summer Reading
  • Watched our storytime videos
  • Signed up for virtual Paint Night
  • Wrote nice Google reviews about us
  • Requested inter-library loan materials
  • Checked out record numbers of eBooks and eAudiobooks
  • Attended an AF Aware mental health class on Zoom
  • Took home an Early Literacy Kit
  • Donated to the Mitten Tree
  • Wrote a letter to Santa
  • Picked up a Harry Potter kit
  • Read 50 books and came to our Well-Read Incentive Dinner
  • Reserved a book club set
  • Used BookFlix to practice reading with your kids
  • Checked out a hotspot
  • Attended a socially distanced ESL class
  • Signed up for tutoring at the Learning Center

We are so grateful for your participation in our activities and offerings. Thank you for rolling with us over the past 12 months! We look forward to the day when our library can be packed full again.
