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.
