• Building Process Update

    The Appleton Public Library Board of Trustees remain committed to the plan for a new library to serve this community. While the Appleton Common Council voted last June not to support the Lawrence Street site, we have heard from many community leaders who are committed to a new building for our much loved, much used library.

    We heard what the Common Council had to say this past year and respect their decision. We also respect that the council has a number of initiatives in progress that may influence the ultimate location of the library — the parking study, the downtown mobility study and the overall plan for downtown Appleton.
