mySummer Returns to Provide Hands-on Opportunities for Learning at Anythink

This summer, Anythink invites everyone to READ THINK DO with the return of the annual mySummer reading program. From June 1-July 31, 2013, customers can explore a myriad of summer programs, events, entertainment and experiences for all ages. This year, mySummer participants will have even more opportunities to interact, with an enhanced web experience that allows for easy searching, social sharing and online reviews. Anyone can become a mySummer member for free by registering at any local Anythink or online at, beginning June 1.

mySummer Programs

Anythink’s unique programs are at the heart of mySummer. With hundreds of programs that cover everything from cooking to hip-hop dance to birds of prey, there is something for all ages and interests. In addition, performers like the Jackman Brothers, Bonnie Phipps, Bill Coleman and Eric West will provide interactive entertainment that encourages participants to be a part of the show. Some programs do require individual registration via our online calendar.

Record Your Summer in Style

This year, all registered mySummer members will receive their very own mySummer 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 six-word review at
