Gretchen Lapham appointed to Anythink Board of Trustees

Gretchen Lapham is the newest member to join the Anythink Board of Trustees, a five-member governing board that oversees Anythink’s finances and formulation of policies. Lapham fills a slot vacated by long-time board member Linda Wisniewski, whose term expired this year.

Lapham has lived in the Reunion neighborhood of Commerce City since 2004 and currently works as a marketing director for Lapham Law Firm, a personal injury firm. As a passionate reader, she has led neighborhood book clubs and even opened up the first Little Free Library in Reunion. Her background in marketing, combined with her advocacy for literacy and libraries, brings a fresh perspective to the board. 

“We have loved the Anythink bookmobile that visits out community weekly for many years, and are passionate about working to bring a library to Reunion,” says Lapham. “I would love for our children to take advantage of Anythink’s wonderful programs and have a safe, beautiful and comfortable space for families to enjoy books, new classes and their neighbors.”

“We are excited to work with Gretchen Lapham as our newest board members,” says Anythink Director Pam Sandlian Smith. “Having representation from the Reunion community is critical for our library district.”
