Dear Friends,

"The need for a strong library is greater than ever"

The Friends of Appleton Public Library needs advocates like you. Throughout the year, we ask library supporters to contact their elected officials to voice their support for the library. Your voice makes a difference.


In simple terms, a library advocate is someone who understands the value and importance of public library service and who communicates that value and importance to the community, government leaders, and other decision-makers. Your primary function as a library advocate will be to provide clear, accurate, and timely information on library issues to people who need it in order to make sound decisions on those issues.

There are many ways to advocate for our library. As an advocate, you can influence decision-makers by:

  • Attending open office hours with the Mayor


  • Talking to friends about the library, its role in the community, and its needs.


  • Hosting a gathering of library supporters to meet your elected Alderperson.

  • Sharing library news and updates on your social media channels e.g. Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter.


  • Testifying at local budget hearings.


  • Talking and writing to state and federal legislators about the needs of the library.

We need your voice to support our library. If you are interested in becoming a library advocate, please take a moment to fill out this simple and short form. Click here to fill out the form.


We would love to have you join us in supporting this vital community resource!


If you have any questions, please contact us.
