mySummer returns with new experiences
Anythink’s annual mySummer program returns in 2017 with new opportunities for customers of all ages to foster their curiosity with ideas and inspiration. From June 1-July 31, community members are encouraged to READ THINK DO at their local Anythink. Anyone can become a mySummer member by registering at any Anythink location or online at anythinklibraries.org/mySummer and signing up for individual programs and performances designed to help participants discover something new.
mySummer programs are designed with exploration in mind. Reimagine ordinary objects and use them to bring a theatrical performance to life. Witness the different and dramatic ways that scientific elements can display their properties. Go beyond the colors that come in the box and use natural ingredients to create your own pigments. No matter what piques your interest, grab a friend – or meet a new one – and experience something new. This year’s mySummer partners include the Denver Zoo, Exploration Universe and Kalama Polynesian Dance.
Geared just for babies up to 4-years-old, Anythink’s miniThinker program is designed to create opportunities for caregivers to spend time with younger children in meaningful ways. Explore early literacy through interactive experiences like cooking, art, science and more. Participants should be ready to move, build and create.
Record your summer
After signing up for mySummer online or at your local Anythink, members will receive their very own mySummer journal. Write and draw your thoughts, follow interactive prompts or take note of your favorite upcoming programs.
Read a Book, Add a Pom-Pom, Write a Review
For every book read, participants can add a pom-pom to the interactive displays at each Anythink location. Customers are invited to discuss what they’ve read with staff, and watch as the displays quickly grow over the summer. They are also encouraged to add a virtual pom-pom online or write a brief book review at anythinklibraries.org/mySummer.
Participating Anythink locations will celebrate mySummer with kick-off events for the whole family. Customers can sign up for programs, receive their mySummer journal, meet Anythink staff and enjoy a number of activities. Below is the schedule for mySummer kickoff events:
