We're celebrating the 5th birthday of the launch of Anythink. We held our breath when over 5,000 people took their first peek at Anythink Brighton as it opened on September 12, 2009. As the community flooded through the doors, the immediate reaction was love at first sight. The beautiful building, the wonderful books, movies and music. We played “Yellow Submarine” on kazoos, learned how to make fresh salsa, and practiced dancing. Everything was shiny and new and gorgeous. Five years later, more than 1.3 million people visit our libraries every year.
