mySummer returns with new opportunities to explore
Anythink’s annual mySummer program returns in 2016 with new opportunities for customers of all ages to explore and create. From May 28-Aug. 1, 2016, community members are encouraged to participate in programs and performances at all Anythink locations that inspire participants to READ THINK DO. Everyone is invited to become a mySummer member by registering at any local Anythink or online at anythinklibraries.org/mySummer. Registration begins May 28.
Imaginative programming is at the heart of the mySummer experience. With partners like Airbound Colorado, Didgeridoo Down Under and Teller Street Galleries, mySummer is an opportunity to explore everything from rock climbing to music to chemistry.
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.
Carry your Creations
After signing up for mySummer online or at a local Anythink, members will receive their very own mySummer tin. These carrying cases are perfect for storing summer creations.
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 tin, interact with staff and enjoy a number of participatory events. Be on the lookout for more celebrations later in the summer as mySummer winds to a close. Below is the schedule for mySummer kickoff events:
- Saturday, May 28, 1 pm – Anythink Brighton
