  • Library Needs Assessment and Site Selection Process

    Tuesday, March 18 during the Appleton Public Library Board of Trustees March Board Meeting, representatives from Engberg Anderson (EA) presented an update of the ongoing library needs assessment and site selection process.

These four sites include; the current Appleton Public Library site, the full block between Franklin, Division, Washington and Superior Street and a combination of two sites between Oneida, Lawrence and Morrison Streets.

    A video of the board meeting, which provides a complete explanation of the sites is available on the City of Appleton website. All documents pertaining to the presentation can be found in the attachments below.

  • Help for the Homeless

    We are collecting new hygiene and cleaning items for local homeless shelters and crisis agencies through 91.9/91.5 The Family’s annual Help for the Homeless hygiene drive, March 3-30. Please place your donations in the collection box located near the front entrance of the library by March 30.

    Supplying these items to the shelters will help them direct their limited resources to providing qualified staff, counseling, food and shelter to those they serve. The most requested items include laundry detergent, garbage bags, dental and hair care items, diapers and baby care and tissue. Your donations will remain in this community. For more information visit the Help for the Homeless web page or call 800-236-9364.
