REVIEWS OF Appleton Public Library IN Wisconsin

Hillary Caruthers

I love the environment of the Appleton Public Library and often go there to work. Great collection and convenient location.

Rich Fercy

One of Appleton's finest resources. Don't let the negative reviews prevent you from enjoying a wonderful asset to downtown Appleton. The employees are dedicated and friendly if you approach them that way. The ability to get books loaned from other Wisconsin libraries means you have even more availability. Spend an hour or three. Have a driving vacation coming up? Borrow an audio book and watch the miles and hours disappear. We do that for every trip and actually sat in the car until the CD was done before checking into the hotel. Yes you do need to donate to the parking meters, but now that you know - not a big deal to bring some change along. So spend 50 cents on parking or $20 on a book at the mall? Your choice.

Tricia Hoyer


i’ve spent hours here! super comfortable and time flies by.



I take my children there almost every day. My son loves the book selection and my daughter always finds what she needs. My youngest, a 2 year old, LOVES the library. I think it has a great selection and checking out books is easy! My son says he wants to be a librarian when he grows up and he wants to work at APL. Thank you for your great selection! Thought parking sucks...;(

Arelly Romero

I love it, it is peaceful and the people are always so helpful.

Very courteous and helpful staff. They have a great selection of books, dvds and plenty computers to browse the Internet or print copies. I do not like paying for parking in their parking lot. All in all though it's pretty good.


Rest In Peace to the firefighter who lost his life here outside, I personally think the bus station interferes with the integrity of the library, they should consider relocating.

Place can be sketchy due to the homeless

The best part of the library is the cooperation with neighboring systems and branches to get you what you need quickly and with a highly accessible system.

Pauline Ziehl

Emily Noèl Showers

Libraries are a community's pillars. They have a stellar collection of knowledge.

Diana Torrino

Horrible. Staff was rude! I felt unsafe, very dirty

Knaomi Dupree

Nice reading spot

The parking meters suck. If you don't have coins, you're SOL. Also, 10 cent fine for returning item "late" - i returned it on its due date, straight after work since work in Appleton but live 30 min away, at 6:45 pm but apparently that counts for nothing. Overall sub-par experiences with this library compared to others. I will not be coming back to this branch.


The library has a nice atrium area with live plants; this is a nice touch, especially during the mid-winter months. That aside, I was working on my computer at one of the desks in the library, minding my own business, when one of the staff told me I had to move because I was in the 'teen' section. I was appalled that this type of discrimination (in the form of ageism) was committed at the hands of a public servant. Although not an actionable offense, it nonetheless reflects poorly on the library and it's staff.

Really cool public library located in downtown Appleton.

Antiwan Bell

Sara Peters

Tons of books to choose from, fast and easy checkout!

Libby Kreider

We love it here!

Kenneth Shearer

I don't like having to pay to park, and the hours that the building is open are too short.

Rusty Box


Otto Shade

All-around excellent place to hang out. Good for kids and adults alike. Be sure to turn off your phone alarms if you're going to go up to the second floor. Also in order to get a library card you need documents. You can find pretty much every book imaginable here, even video games and audiobooks!

Alex Smith

There needs to be more diversity in the library staff. There tends to be discrimination in treatment from the predominantly Caucasian staff towards minority patrons. That's not great customer service!

Allen Blodgett

Great selection, laid back

Eugene Cooper


Steve E

Santhosh Manoharan

Vast collection of fiction and kids books.

alejandra trini

Alan Schroeder

Excellent staff and top-notch children's programs. Great choice of books and materials. We are very fortunate to have such a fine library in our community.

Frank Hada

Andrew John

Friendly staff, who are very helpful. Great slection, but this facility needs a face lift, among other things.

Celia Powell

I love the APL! So many types of media available and a great collection. I can usually find or reserve exactly what I am looking for (and 10 other things I didn't even know I wanted.)

Isabel Jenneman

Amazing selection and helpful staff. DVD's are not the easiest to search though. Check out is a breeze. Multiple events and programs, plus areas for teens and kids.
