Anythink celebrates 10-year anniversary

Celebrations include community outreach events, return of Sparkopolis

Posted

On Sept. 12, 2009, Anythink launched its first fully branded new library, Anythink Brighton. Since then, Anythink libraries have grown to become one of the most recognized library systems in the country.

In honor of its 10th anniversary, Anythink is celebrating with the Anythink Anniversary Tour, a series of community outreach events, and the return of Sparkopolis, a one-of-a-kind fundraiser for the Anythink Foundation.

Anythink staff and volunteers will go door-to-door in different Adams County neighborhoods on Saturday, July 20 and Wednesday, July 24. These events will provide staff with the opportunity to say thank you to the community, while also introducing newcomers to the library.

The Anythink Anniversary Tour will also include stops at the King Soopers location in Commerce City (July 13), the Adams County Fair (Aug. 2), Bennett Days (Sept. 7), Welby Days (Sept. 14) and a number of other pop-up events throughout the summer.

The celebration will continue Saturday, Sept. 7 at Sparkopolis, a fundraiser for the Anythink Foundation. With whimsical experiences and entertainment, this highly anticipated event returns for the first time since 2011.

Hosted after-hours at Anythink Wright Farms in Thornton, Sparkopolis attendees will help the library continue its mission to “open doors for curious minds” while joining friends and neighbors for an exciting evening of interactive experiences. More details on Sparkopolis to follow in the coming weeks.

“Since launching Anythink in 2009, we have been dedicated to providing Adams County residents with the exceptional service and libraries they deserve,” Anythink Director Pam Sandlian Smith said in a news release. “As we look toward the future, our organization continues to evolve alongside our community, providing even more opportunities to improve the quality of life for everyone in Adams County.”
