• Summer Library Program Registration Now Open

    Registration for our Summer Library Program is now open. All programs begin Monday, June 6. This year you can play online or particpate in our traditional program on paper. If you play online, you can play anytime and from anywhere, earning points and digital badges, and unlocking games as you log your reading. Our Summer Library Program page at www.apl.org/summer gives you a basic overview and links to all the online programs. If you opt to do only the paper program, you will need to come to the library to register and participate. (Only the adult program requires you to choose between the two options.)

  • Appleton Comprehensive Plan Update

    Below is a City of Appleton Comprehensive Plan Update from the City of Appleton.

    Over the past several weeks, there have been numerous opportunities for community members to provide input regarding the update to the City of Appleton’s Comprehensive Plan.

    Out of these conversations and online feedback several themes have emerged:
    • Opportunity to connect and expand the bike/walking paths throughout the city.
    • A desire for a more walkable community, including concern over safety.
    • The revitalization of commercial corridors such as Wisconsin Avenue.
    • Downtown mixed-used facilities.
    • Providing more housing options and maintaining housing affordability.

  • Announcing a New Seed Library at APL!

    The role of the community seed library will be to help foster the sharing of seeds. We’ll have a collection of seeds that you can borrow to plant and grow your own food, herbs and flowers at home. After your plants mature and “go to seed,” you save the seeds and return them to the library so they can be shared with others. Stop by and learn about the benefits of seed sharing!
