mySummer Returns with New Opportunities for Interactive Learning

Anythink invites customers of all ages to READ THINK DO with the return of its annual mySummer program. Discover a diverse set of programs, events, entertainment and experiences from May 31-July 31, 2014, at all Anythink locations. This year, mySummer explores the STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and technology) concept with innovative programs and partnerships. Anyone can become a mySummer member for free by registering at any local Anythink or online at, beginning May 31.

mySummer Programs
Anythink’s imaginative programs are at the heart of mySummer, and this year’s STEAM focus brings a whole new approach to interactive learning. With a variety of partners like Mad Science, Environmental Learning for Kids and the Imaging Technology Group, discover just how fun and fascinating STEAM can be with hands-on programs and experiments. Some programs do require individual registration via Anythink’s online calendar.

Record Your Summer in Style
Back by popular demand, mySummer members will receive their very own messenger bag. These sturdy bags are more than just a great way to carry books – they’re also a canvas for participants to record their creativity, artwork and mySummer progress.

Read a Book, Add a Pom-Pom, Write a Review
All books read over the summer will be represented at each branch through the “Read a Book, Add a Pom-Pom” program. For every book a customer or staff member reads, they’ll add a pom-pom to an interactive display, which will quickly grow and change throughout the summer. Participants are also encouraged to add a virtual pom-pom online or write a brief book review at
