  • We Stand With Our AAPI Communities

    The Appleton Public Library joins the City of Appleton in condemning all acts of bigotry, xenophobia and violence against the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities across our community and country.

    Racism and hate have no place in our library and community. The Appleton Public Library is committed to providing a welcoming place for all. A safe place and space where everyone belongs. We support and stand in solidarity with our Asian American and Pacific Islander staff and community members.

    We must acknowledge the racism and discrimination that continues to affect our communities of color. We all need to play a part in speaking out against these acts so everyone in our community is treated with dignity and respect.

  • Road Construction - Appleton Street

    Appleton Street will be closed until mid-May and the library entrance/exit will be closed on that side. Please use the Oneida Street entrance/exit when coming/leaving the library.

  • Library Building Project Update: March 2021

    The City of Appleton Common Council has awarded a contract to Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) for design and engineering services for the Appleton Public Library at its current location.

    Last December, a draft Request for Proposal (RFP) was presented to the Library Board of Trustees and City Council. The input received from those meetings, as well as from a public listening session, was incorporated into the document and an RFP for design and engineering services for a new or remodeled library was released with submissions due early February.
