You're invited to drop-in, take a look at the top four sites, ask questions and provide input about the library needs assessment and site selection process. Representatives from Engberg Anderson and APL Staff will be on-hand to answer questions. You'll also be able to pick your favorite site with a fun, hands-on activity.

The open house will be located on the first level in the Appleton Public Library’s Children’s Program Rooms.

Walk A Mile Postponed

Due to scheduling conflicts, the Walk a Mile program for March 27 has been postponed to a later date. That date has yet to be decided, but will likely be in the fall.

Our next program will be April 24, when we look at human trafficking here in the Valley.

Did You Know? Radical Adjustments: The Life and Times of Marilyn Reed Lucia

Most people have never heard of Marilyn Reed Lucia. I certainly hadn’t until I found out about the extremely compelling new documentary called Radical Adjustments: The Life and Times of Marilyn Reed Lucia. Marilyn grew up during the Great Depression. She had a dream of becoming a doctor at a time when only 3% of medical students were female. She married a war hero, obtained a divorce, remarried, and raised four children while attending medical school. Her third child, Daryl, was born with a severe facial deformity which drastically changed her perspective on life. Yet she was able to reach her dream of becoming a doctor of psychiatry. This documentary traces the life of Lucia to the present day through vintage photographs, film footage, and present day interviews with Lucia.

Now that you know about Marilyn Reed Lucia, we hope that you will attend the film screening and discussion on Thursday, April 17, from 6:00-8:00 pm. This film discussion is co-sponsored by Compassionate Fox Cities. Refreshments served. Free admission. For further information contact Elizabeth Eisen, Adult Programming Librarian, 920-832-6392.
