“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” – Albert Einstein

Take a journey with us this summer with the artwork of Jayson Fann. Over the next few months, explore elaborate outdoor sculptures created to spark curiosity and wonder. These spirit nests, made from reclaimed local materials, are designed by the artist to inspire a deep connection with nature. The pieces serve as reminders to make connections, ask questions and celebrate the world around us. As the spirit nests are built, find opportunities to participate in the creation process through workshops with the artist, as well as a number of special programs at each Anythink branch.

Explore upcoming mySummer programs below and let curiosity be your guide.

As an experience library, Anythink introduced mySummer in 2010 as a way for people of all ages – babies, kids, teens, adults – to let curiosity be their guide during the summer months. We encourage everyone to READ books that inspire, to THINK about new topics and questions, and to DO all of the hands-on activities that help them experience the world around us. Programs like mySummer help close opportunity gaps by providing high-quality, hands-on learning experiences to students of all ages and backgrounds.
