Kelly Allen announced as Anythink Brighton manager

Kelly Allen is the new manager at Anythink Brighton. Allen joined the Anythink organization in 2015 as an adult guide at Anythink Wright Farms.

Allen comes to the position with many years of experience in libraries. Her first job was at her hometown public library in Tulsa, Okla. Allen went on to earn her master’s degree in information and library science from the University of Texas at Austin. In addition to more traditional library positions, Allen co-founded and operated an independent bookmobile in Houston.

“Community is at the heart of Anythink, and I am excited to lead and support our Brighton team as we cultivate local connections,” says Allen.

“Kelly Allen is an Anythinker at heart, and we welcome her into our management team,” says Anythink Director Pam Sandlian Smith. “She has the creativity, motivation and optimism that are essential to the Anythink leadership.”
