• Safety and Security at the Library

    Over the last few months, we have received a few comments and concerns about safety and security. We are listening and take all comments and concerns seriously.

    Discussions about safety and security at the library are not new. Public entities have an obligation to make safety and security a priority. We haven’t embarked on this work alone. We have enormous support from the City of Appleton Facilities Department (Facilities), Appleton Police Department (APD) and other libraries, including the Milwaukee Public Library (MPL).

    In brief, here are some of the changes we have made regarding safety and security:

  • Building Process Update - July 2019

    There still is no substantial update with the building process and library planning continues to remain on hold. The city and Commercial Horizons are working on elements related to the part of the project that could satisfy both the library’s parking needs as well as other neighbor needs like the YMCA.

    For more information on the building process, please visit our planning page - www.apl.org/planning.

  • Call for Artists!

    Are you an artist who feels strongly about the power of art in the community? Would you like to help make art and the art-making process accessible and fun? We are now recruiting Artist-in-Residence (AIR) candidates for the 2020 calendar year. Each residency runs three months and a stipend is funded by Friends of Appleton Public Library.

    To apply or find out more information check out our Artist-in-Residence page. The submission period will be open until August 15. Please contact Melanie Thurber, Adult Services Librarian, at mthurber@apl.org for questions or more information.

  • NEW! Lucky Day Materials

    We have a new collection of materials called Lucky Day. Lucky Day materials are generally materials with high holds on them - so popular titles. We don’t put holds on these items and they have a 2 week checkout period with a limit of 2 items per library card. To check one out you’ll have to come to the library...and see if it’s your lucky day!

  • Ride to the Library for Free

    Kids! Show your library card to any Valley Transit bus driver and ride to and from the library for free on Wednesdays. Applies to kids ages 17 and under. 

    Want even more freebies? Sign up for our Summer Library Program and receive a coupon to erase any late fees you have! Sorry adults, this also only applies to kids ages 17 and under.
