American Shelves

American Shelves are similar in function but smaller in scale than the American Corners. They are partnerships between the American Institute in Taiwan and local institutions for the purpose of providing library materials for understanding American society and culture. In addition, they offer programs when possible. The American Shelves are in Yilan, Tainan, Taoyuan, Matsu, Kaohsiung as well as Pintung.
