Anythink partners with museum for summer programs

Posted

Anythink LIbraries’ annual summer program for all ages “mySummer” returns with new partnerships and experiences, helping close opportunity gaps by providing hands-on learning to students of all ages and backgrounds.

With a mantra of Read, Think, Do, mySummer provides experiences that go beyond traditional reading lists to include programs that prompt young learners to be inspired, think critically and engage with new topics, according to a news release.

This year, participants will be able to extend the fun and learning even further at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, the official partner of mySummer 2019. Each individual to register for mySummer 2019 will receive a ticket good for free entrance to the museum through the end of the calendar year.

“We are excited to be a part of Anythink’s summer program, and look forward to learners continuing their summer adventures with a visit to the museum,” Tanya Breeling, offsite program manager at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, said in the release. “Anythink’s mission of opening doors for curious minds is the perfect complement to our work in igniting the community’s passion for nature and science. We are grateful for the opportunity to feed the desire for exploration and discovery together through this program.”

In addition, the museum and other community partners such as Eurekus and STEMpunk will host mySummer science, technology and nature programs at Anythink, bringing an added level of expertise to these library experiences, the release said.

“Opportunities for summer learning are critical for a child’s continued academic success,” Suzanne McGowan, Anythink’s director of customer experience, said in the release. “By providing quality programs and experiences like a trip to the museum, mySummer helps make those opportunities accessible to all students in our community. The Denver Museum of Nature & Science fosters the same culture of curiosity and wonder that we value at Anythink, and we’re excited to have such a likeminded partner to help make these spirited and educational experiences possible.”

Anythink customers can sign up in person or online at anythinklibraries.org/mySummer.
