• APL Storytellers

    We're about to embark on a very exciting journey. Over the course of the last few months, we've been working with ten of our community members to gather their personal stories about how the library has helped them create their future. Each person has a unique story to tell. During the next eight weeks we will be releasing the stories to our community, online and here at the library.

    We hope you become an APL Storyteller too! Let's get the conversation started about our library and the role it plays in our community. Share your story with us, your neighbors, your friends, everyone you can! And don't forget to check back next week for the debut of our first storyteller.

  • Learn what DNA testing can tell you about your family background

    Jeffrey Bassett--an expert on DNA testing and genetic DNA--will be our first speaker in the Find Your Ancestors series. His presentation, Genetic Genealogy and the Bassett DNA Project, will take place November 12, from 2:00-3:30 pm. Learn about the different types of DNA testing and what information each can and cannot provide. He will use examples from his years of research to explain how you can find out more about your genetic makeup and from which regions your ancestors may have originated.
