Summer is one of the busiest times at the Appleton Public Library! June kicks off our largest program, the Summer Reading Program. This year we have five great programs for you, including a new baby and toddler program, as well as returning family, children, teen and adult programs.
We're also launching our long-range planning process website. This website will be our way of keeping you up-to-date on our long-range planning process. In this quarter's newsletter you can find more information about the process. You can also find complete information about the process on our website at www.apl150.org.

Hey folks! I just heard about this incredibly cool thing that NPR is doing for teens. I know, I know...you are probably thinking "NPR? My parents listen to that station! *sigh* These teen librarians are so out of touch!". But wait! Hear me out. What on earth could NPR be doing that would appeal to teens? Giving away an opportunity to go on a date night with Harry from One Direction? Err--sorry, not happening. (You are now either terribly disappointed or incredibly relieved!) Either way, if you are a teen who likes to write and likes to share, what NPR is actually doing is quite cool.
So, here's the deal. NPR is on the hunt for teen diarists willing to share their personal stories for the show Radio Diaries. Two winners will be chosen to produce their stories for the show and others will be made available on NPR's website. You can write about anything you want - so long as it is true. Is your interest peaked? If so, check out this link to NPR's page where you can find out all the details and learn how to submit. The deadline for entries is May 31, 2013. Oh, and by the way, if you submit something, we would be happy to accept your submission for a grand prize entry in our Teen Summer Library Program. What have you got to lose?
