Anythink announces reopening plans

Due to the decline of COVID-19 cases in Adams County, all seven Anythink locations will reopen to the public during special hours beginning Feb. 1, 2021. Anythink believes in cultivating a community that is happy, healthy and safe. With this in mind, the libraries will resume the COVID-19 precautions put into place in 2020 to provide a safe environment for staff and the public. These precautions are based on guidance from the Tri-County Health Department, as well as industry research tailored to the distinct needs of libraries. This includes increased janitorial services, reduced capacity in accordance with state guidelines, improved ventilation and the quarantine of all returned library materials up to one week. 

Community members are invited to explore and browse with the same hospitality they have come to know and expect from Anythink. To ensure a healthy environment for all, customers will be advised to maintain a physical distance of six feet from staff and other library visitors. So that everyone can enjoy the library, Anythink is encouraging customers to limit their visits to 60 minutes. As per Colorado state mandate, masks are required to be worn by staff and customers, and free masks are available.

“We are eager to welcome everyone back to our libraries,” says Anythink Director Pam Sandlian Smith. “They are designed to be warm and inviting, and we look forward to reconnecting with our customers in-person. Whether you’re looking for recommendations, resources or a friendly face, Anythink remains a hub for everyone in the community.” 

For customers that prefer a contact-free experience, curbside services will remain available at all locations. When using curbside services, community members are encouraged to place holds in advance, park in a designated spot, and remain in their vehicles while an Anythink staff member retrieves their materials.
