The Appleton City Public Library is conducting their Friends of the Best Sellers Program until May 19, 2022. The program’s purpose is to fund the purchase of new hardback books for the library. You can become a friend by either choosing a book from the list or requesting another book you’ve wanted to read and then donating $20.00 for said book. The perks of being a Friend to the library are that you will be the first person to check the book out, and you will be honored by having your name placed on a special nameplate in the front of each of the Library Friend books. Library hours are Tuesdays and Thursdays, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and Saturdays, 8:00 a.m. to noon.
