Did You Know? Waking Up In a Park: The Volunteer Experiences of an Appleton Couple


APL recently welcomed Bob Schmall as a new volunteer at Appleton Public Library. We discovered that this long time history teacher and his wife, Martha, traveled across the United States as volunteers for U.S. Wildlife refuges when Bob retired. One of their projects involved archiving the history of Horicon Marsh. Want to learn more? On Thursday, May 15th, 7:00-8:00 pm, Bob and Martha Schmall will present a slide show called Waking Up In a Park: The Volunteer Experiences of an Appleton Couple. Come and enjoy stories about their travels while viewing beautiful photographs detailing their experiences. Free admission.


Reading to Infants and Toddlers

Have you seen the Begin Smart video hosted by the Library of Virginia on YouTube? This fifteen minute video is chock full of the whys and hows of early literacy. A range of young children and caregivers demonstrate ways to read together from infancy to toddlerhood. For more information like this go to Growing Wisconsin Readers, a site sponsered by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.

Walk A Mile In My Shoes

Thursday, April 24 | 6:30-8:00 pm

Another installment of the Walk a Mile in My Shoes program is almost upon us. During this session we'll take a look at human trafficking in the Fox Valley area.

The program will give you the opportunity to listen, ask questions and learn from someone whose experiences may be different than your own.
