The partners for this year’s events included the Denver Zoo, Exploration Universe and the Kalama Polynesian Dance.Every Anythink Library will celebrate their mySummer Finale at the end of July, each with unique events and entertainment. The celebration is open to the public for all ages and prior registration is not required.“It’s a way to celebrate with everyone who has been coming to the programs since the end of May,” she said. “They celebrate those folks, they celebrate with them and wrap up the summer together and talk about the different experiences we’ve had. And, it’s a way to just have fun.”
