Recent APL news:
Appleton considers mixed-use library.  (Appleton Post-Crescent, 5/17/2016)
A “mixed-use” facility would involve a library and another development — such as a community center, housing, retail or commercial space — being housed in the same building.
Editorial:  Mixed-use library is great, but it'll take work.  (Appleton Post-Crescent, 5/20/2016)
The idea of a mixed-use library building is not unprecedented. Portland, Oregon, has a library branch with housing on the upper floors. Milwaukee is trying out the concept with its branch libraries, too. Closer to home in Kaukauna, the library is renting a floor of the Eagle Mill project and the result has been well-received. It all seems to be a good fit — apartments and libraries especially would make great neighbors.
