Appleton Library is ready for summer with
Bikes for Books and other events!
Bikes for Books summer reading program is open to any child who has an Appleton Library card. No card? Come in and we'll give you one for free! The more you read, the more chances you have to win one of six bikes donated by our local Masons. There are boys and girls bikes in 3 sizes - 16 inch with training wheels, 20 inch and 24 inch - and all come with a helmet. Our program starts on Tuesday June 24 and ends September 4 with the raffle drawing for the bikes at a party on Saturday September 6.

Art at the Library
Stories of the Land and Its People Exhibit
On loan from the Farnsworth Art Museum featuring 4th and 7th grade photography from Appleton Village School students.
This exhibit is the result of a yearlong arts integration initiative in midcoast public schools, in which students work with museum educators, professional artists, classroom teachers, art teachers and community members to tell the story of their community through art.

Langlais Art Trail

The Langlais Art Trail is devoted to the mapping of the spirited art of Bernard Langlais (1921 - 1977) across his native state. The Appleton Library is proud to be a part of the Trail. Pieces of his prolific work can be viewed and enjoyed any time the library is open. For more information about the Trail, please visit http://langlaisarttrail.org/. An interesting news report about the Langlais exhibit at Colby College can be viewed at http://www.wcsh6.com/story/news/local/207/2014/07/18/colby-college-museum-art-bernard-langlais/12865361/
