  • APL Storyteller - Soua and Nhia

    My name is Nhia and my wife’s name is Soua. In 2005, our family relocated to the United States from Thailand as Hmong refugees. With no understanding of the language or the culture, we arrived on American soil, determined to rebuild our lives. Most Hmong refugees who come to the United States have traumatizing experiences; first escaping the war, then struggling with cultural differences, language barriers and the everyday stress of achieving the American dream. Like many refugees, our hope was to begin a career, but we didn’t have the skills. When we arrived, we could barely understand English.

  • APL Storyteller - Sean

    I started working for the library five years ago. My teachers Jean and Diane set me up to work here through the Life Program at Appleton North High School. I started working with four friends, but I am the only one who continues to work at the library.

    I come to the library to shelve materials Monday through Thursday starting at 10:00 am. I walk here from my house, even if it’s raining. My favorite part of my job is shelving the green DVDs. After I am done with my shelving job, I like to go on the computers. I also like to check out DVDs.

    “Sean has put in over 1,100 hours volunteering here at the library,” said Kris, Sean’s Supervisor. “He is enthusiastic, caring and takes ownership of his work.
