Anythink Board of Trustees approves ballot measure
On Wednesday, Aug. 15, 2018, the Anythink Board of Trustees approved a ballot measure for additional funding for Anythink (also known as Rangeview Library District). As the county experiences increasing population growth and development, the library system needs additional funding to expand its capacity and keep pace with growth. The additional funding would allow Anythink to expand service hours and provide more programs in order for people to not be turned away or waitlisted due to lack of capacity. The funding would also provide additional computers, internet access, technology and skills training materials, books, ebooks, DVDs and CDs to keep up with customer demand. In addition, the funds would be used to build at least two additional branches in Adams County.
On Sept. 4, 2018, the Adams County Board of County Commissioners will consider a resolution certifying the Anythink ballot proposal.
“Ten years ago, Anythink shifted its approach to become one of the most recognized libraries in the world,” says Anythink Board of Trustees president Lynne Fox. “Since then, the needs of our rapidly growing and vibrant community have only increased. We now have an opportunity to meet that demand and support one of the community’s most vital and trusted resources – the library.”

The Anythink Board of Trustees consists of five members appointed by the Adams County Board of County Commissioners and is responsible for the library district’s finances and formulation of policies. The Board of Trustees meets on the third Wednesday of each month at 5 pm at various Anythink locations.
