mySummer

Class

Arts, Culture & Humanities 

Beneficiaries

Adolescents/Youth (13-19 years)
Children (4-12 years)

Description

mySummer programs are designed with exploration in mind. Reimagine ordinary objects and use them to bring a theatrical performance to life. Witness the different and dramatic ways that scientific elements can display their properties. Go beyond the colors that come in the box and use natural ingredients to create your own pigments. No matter what piques your interest, grab a friend - or meet a new one - and experience something new.

Nature Explore

Class

Environment 

Beneficiaries

Adolescents/Youth (13-19 years)
Children (4-12 years)

Description

Nature Explore Classrooms are dynamic learning spaces that help children connect with the natural world, giving them a creative outdoor space to build, crawl, climb and dig.

Nature Explore is a joint program run by the Arbor Day Foundation and the Dimensions
Educational Research Foundation. According to the Dimensions Foundation, research
from many sources shows that children need engagement with the natural world as a
regular part of their healthy growth and development. Without it, they can have issues
with obesity, dislike of the outdoors, and increased reliance on behavior-regulating medications. Through direct observation of children in the spaces, the Dimensions Foundation has documented enhanced skill development in many areas, including math, art, science, language and socialization.

This is Who We Are

Beneficiaries

Adults
Aging, Elderly, Senior Citizens
Children (4-12 years)

Description

Anythink's collaborative public art project "This is Who We Are" partners community members with local artists to create public art pieces that represent the fabric of the community. The first project launched at Anythink Bennett in December 2011 with the help of funds raised by the Anythink Foundation.

This unique project brought people together to create an incredible art piece that lives on in the library. Plans are underway to launch similar projects at each of Anythink's locations. Through individual contributions and the help of the Anythink Foundation, each local Anythink will include a piece of art that reflects the spirit of the community it serves.
