APPLETON – The architect for the city’s $26.4 million library project has designed the building to bring nature in and push programming out. Now, officials want to know what the public thinks about it.

From 7 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, the city will hold a virtual meeting where Skidmore, Owings & Merrill of Chicago will review its conceptual designs and gather feedback from the community to shape the look and functionality of the library.

“We’re early in the process,” said Julie Michiels, SOM’s interior design leader. “There’s still a lot of development ahead of us.”

Earlier this week, the Library Board got its first look at the plans to renovate and expand the library, 225 N. Oneida St. Members were impressed with what they saw and heard.
