  • Community Questions Game

    Let's talk. In an increasingly complex, diverse and sometimes divided world, the Community Questions Game provides a safe public space to discover answers and engage in conversations with people who are different from you. Stop in today to post a unique question or respond using a statement, drawing, fact, or question. APL is hosting the second of two interactive installations designed by MIT graduate student, Libby Falck, through Monday, August 13. 

  • Library Building Process Focus Groups

    We need your help!

    We are working on a building process with OPN Architects. We'll be conducting focus groups with OPN the first few weeks of August. We're hoping to learn more about how you envision your library. We have seven focus groups scheduled. Most of them are scheduled by unique user groups. If you find that you fit into one of the groups, please pick one to attend. All of the focus groups will be located in the lower level board room. Free snacks and drinks will be provided.

    Interested in attending? Register here by clicking on the focus group you would like to attend.

  • Library Planning Update: Staff and Community Spaces

    Here’s an update about our third meeting with the architects working on the library proposal.

    In general, a library has community, collection, staff and unassigned spaces. Unassigned spaces include restrooms and mechanical operations. The architects facilitated a discussion focused on community and spaces.

  • Memory Cafe Special Guest

    Memory Cafe participants were treated to a special guest appearance by Faith, the therapy dog from Carolina Manor. Bob Archer, Faith's handler, helped the group celebrate Independence Day!

  • Beau Thomas: Artist-in-Residence

    We're excited to announce our latest artist-in-residence, Beau Thomas. Beau was born and raised in Green Bay. He is an artist that specializes in murals, paintings and graphic design.

    Beau has completed over 80 murals, including projects for Red Bull, Badger State Brewing Company and the Green Bay Area Public School District. His work has been on display at the Neville Public Museum, UWGB's Lawton Gallery and the Voices Gallery in Dubuque, Iowa.

    Beau's art will be on display in our lower level gallery from July 2 to September 28. Beau will also offer special classes and workshops on July 18. Check out the schedule below.

  • Library Planning: Meeting Two

    Here’s a quick update of where we are with the mixed-use library proposal project. I'd also like to take a moment to address the topic on everyone’s minds…parking!

    Last week the architects returned to work on the mixed-use library proposal. They worked with a group of city staff, library trustees and neighborhood partners.

    We viewed a draft report from their first visit on June 6 and 7. This report will be available to the public when it is complete. It reflects the activities and input of over 150 community members.
