What's better than a public library for helping someone reach for the stars? Support innovation and creativity in Adams County by donating to the Anythink Foundation - helping your local library in its mission to "open doors for curious minds."
Supporting the Anythink Foundation directly helps programs at Anythink Libraries. These programs are offered at no cost to the residents of Adams County, creating a fabric of opportunity and fun for any person walking in the doors.

The goal of the Anythink Foundation is to support the key strategies of the library through fundraising activities. These strategies include: creating a learning organization for staff and community, growing a participatory library, collaborating with our community, supporting innovation through technology and shifting perceptions of Anythink and libraries.
In 2013, the Anythink Foundation hosted its first annual Backyard Concert Series. All of the proceeds from food and beverage sales benefited the Anythink Foundation and helped us to build future Nature Explore outdoor classrooms at several Anythink locations. We had another incredible year in 2014 where close to 1,000 people attended the three summer concerts.
Funds raised by the Anythink Foundation support programs and services in four key areas:
• Capital projects
• Public art
• Expansion of collections
• Exceptional programs, activities and computer education
Formed in 2009, the Anythink Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 developed to raise private funds for Anythink Libraries. The Anythink Foundation helps Adams County residents and the library to shoot for the moon and tap into their best selves. By supporting initiatives that help enhance people's quality of life, Anythink becomes more than a library; it becomes a destination.
The projects funded by the Anythink Foundation fall outside of the scope of the district's normal operations. Initiatives like Anythink's public art projects, creativity labs, special programs and more are eligible for funding through the Anythink Foundation. And at Anythink, there's never a lack of new ideas sprouting.
Executive Director Statement
We do not have an ED at this time.
Board Chair/President Statement
The Anythink Foundation over the past three years has made great strides in building awareness about the foundation itself and Anythink libraries in Adams County. We've spent time working with the library staff, building awareness internally, and have recently held a very successful concert series to bring the community together and let people know how they can contribute to the Anythink Foundation. We still have work to do in growing relationships and building that awareness, but we support a great library staff and board who are passionate about supporting Anythink's mission to "open doors for curious minds."
