Burke Beu appointed to Anythink Board of Trustees

Burke Beu is the newest member of the Anythink Board of Trustees, a five-member governing board that oversees Anythink’s finances and formulation of policies. Burke fills a slot vacated by former board trustee Mizraim Cordero, whose term expired this year.

“We welcome Burke Beu as a member of our Board of Trustees,” says Anythink Director Pam Sandlian Smith. “He joins our board at such an interesting time as our community is growing and the library is initiating its next round of strategic planning for future programs and services.”

A current Commerce City, Colo., resident, Beu has spent the majority of his life in Adams County. After graduating from Adams City High School in Commerce City, Colo., he went on to pursue an education in health care management and social studies. Beu has more than 20 years’ experience in program management for professional associations, including the National Stroke Association, the Association of Operating Room Nurses, and the National Association of Social Workers-Colorado Chapter. Beu is also a licensed substitute teacher, with classroom experience in Denver Public Schools. Today, he works as a medication-qualified counselor at a Denver-based residential treatment facility for abused, neglected and delinquent youth.

“I applied to serve on the Anythink Board of Trustees because this library system is a revolution in what libraries can be,” says Beu. “Libraries are wonderful centers of knowledge, tremendous community resources, and ever-changing catalysts of opportunity and creativity – and the Anythink model is exemplary.”
