• Building Project Update

    Our job at the Appleton Public Library is to provide a framework that will meet the library service demands of the citizens of Appleton in the short and long term. In doing that work we have been responsive to the public feedback we have heard throughout the building process, which formally started in 2008.

    We invite you to take a few minutes to read our latest building project update in the attachment below. In the article you will find information about the process up until this point. You may be familiar with some of the background information, and other pieces may be new to you, but we hope you find it helpful.
