Anythink Commerce City Closes Temporarily for WordThink Conversion

Monday, Oct. 5-Saturday, Oct. 10, Anythink Commerce City will be closed as staff converts the collection from the current Dewey Decimal Classification to the district’s own WordThink system. Anythink Commerce City will be the fifth library in the district to convert to the new word-based system, including Anythink in Motion – the district’s bookmobile.

The WordThink system was generated from a retail-based standard for organizing materials. Similar to what you might see in a bookstore, materials are arranged by simple categories like history and science instead of the old numeric system. Customers already using WordThink at other libraries are delighted at the ease of use of this new system, which is geared more towards browsing and helps customers find exactly what they need quickly and intuitively.

Anythink Commerce City customers can see the new system in action beginning Tuesday, Oct. 13. All Anythink libraries will be closed for Columbus Day, Monday, Oct. 12.
