APL Adults

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.

National Library Week

Celebrate National Library Week with us! April 14-19 we will be giving away fun APL totes at our service desks in celebration of National Library Week. Supplies are limited, make sure you stop by early in the week.

Children's Services is also teaming up with Culver's to host a coloring contest during the month of April. Children age 4-11 can participate by drawing a picture about their favorite book. It can be a character, event, scene or anything you liked about the book. Return the drawing to Appleton Public Library's Children's Services desk between April 1 and April 30 and receive a certificate for a FREE single scoop of Culver's Frozen Custard in a cake cone or dish to be redeemed at one of Appleton's Culver's locations. You'll also be eligible to win a special prize in a random drawing at APL. Pick up your color sheet at the Children's Services desk or download it here.
