Anythink Everywhere

Discover resources for learning, entertainment and more.


The Anythink Backyard Concert Series returns with three special online performances! Join Anythinkers from across the globe on Facebook and YouTube for new ways to connect with the band, the library, and each other – all from the comfort of home. Get your home concert-ready with blankets, chairs, bubbles or any of the other provisions that make for a fun, family-friendly night of music.

You can see the official lineup and listen to our performers today. A fundraiser for the Anythink Foundation, the Backyard Concert Series is a great opportunity to celebrate local music while supporting the library.


Need a new read? Place a hold on books, movies and more, and pick them up in-person. Anythink’s curbside service provides a contact-free option for getting the materials you love while keeping our community safe. Simply drive up to a designated parking spot, remain in your car, and follow the instructions on the sign while you wait for your holds.

Know before you go – please refer to these best practices and instructions.

Special curbside service hours are available at every branch.

While we can’t see you face-to-face, we can still connect! Give us a call to hear a friendly voice and discuss books, music, movies and more. Learn about library resources to keep you informed, inspired and entertained from home. Disponible en español los sábados.
