Redesigning the library

What makes the library a welcoming place in the community? What does your ideal library look like? Along with Anythink's commitment to delivering superior customer service, our physical buildings are designed to invite and encourage discovery and conversation. Over the years, the physical library space has changed dramatically to accommodate new and ever-changing community, informational and technological needs. Library designers incorporate these needs into the building design through a balance of aesthetics and functionality.

Taking wing with words: Poetry in April

April is National Poetry Month. It’s time to find, flutter, fly. You can take wing, with words.

'Game of Thrones': Catch up on the series before the Season 4 premiere

The cultural sensation that is Game of Thrones continues April 6, 2014, with its highly anticipated Season 4 premiere on HBO. I was one of the lucky few to attend an advanced screening of the show on March 27 here in Denver.

Made happy at Camp Happiness

About a year and a half ago, we here at Anythink set on a course to create at least 12 "Experience Zones" a year at each library location.

With that prompt, I came up with the idea to create a space where our customers could take a pay-it-forward act of kindness token in order to increase happiness throughout our community.

Spring break, Colorado style

I am fairly new to Colorful Colorado and my spring break is quickly approaching. Instead of traversing to the beach or home, I decided to thoroughly explore all of the places and adventures avaiable here in my new state. After talking to some awesome co-workers and friends and consulting various websites, I've created a top 10 list of things I would like to do. Consider taking a different approach to spring break this year with one of the following Colorado experiences:
