You might be referring to libraries, of which AutoHotkey has plenty. A large centralized location of them is managed by Ixiko (also known as Frosti on the AHK forum)
https://github.com/Ixiko/AHK-libs-and-classes-collection
(AHK-libs-and-classes-collection)

Also, AutoHotkey is not Python, so don't expect the languages to have the same purpose, behavior, organization, or culture. Just saying. To add various third-party ahk files to your existing scripts, you can simply use #Include (https://www.autohotkey.com/docs/commands/_Include.htm). You can also add files, dlls, and pictures to compiled scripts by using FileInstall (https://www.autohotkey.com/docs/commands/FileInstall.htm). Though a bit more complicated, you can add various C functions using MCode- (https://www.autohotkey.com/boards/viewtopic.php?t=32, https://www.autohotkey.com/boards/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=4642)

Many thanks, @SOTE, for the link to lxiko's compendium of third-party libraries on GitHub. I wasn't aware of it before.
