Anythink Libraries to Build a Nature Library
Anythink Libraries in Colorado announced the following:
Anythink Libraries and the City of Thornton have entered an agreement to build a nature library. … After years of planning, Thornton City Council and the Anythink Board of Trustees have signed an intergovernmental agreement that would lease 15 acres to the district, with plans to build a 35,000-square-foot nature library. The other 140 acres of open lands will be programmed by the Anythink team and reserved for nature learning and exploration.
The Anythink Nature Library will be designed to support the wellbeing of the Thornton community through spaces, experiences and collections. The library will … encourage people of all ages to spend time outdoors learning about stars, water, wildlife and seasonal changes to help build a culture of environmental stewardship. This natural experience is intended to spark imagination and creativity, while providing a place to practice being human.
Design phase of the library project is currently underway, with five main areas of focus: creating a space that is boundless, where nature education is seamlessly provided within the library and throughout the surrounding land; wellbeing, focusing on the health and wellness of the community; environmental stewardship, expanding individual responsibility to the earth; heritage, celebrating the history and culture of the people, animals, flora and fauna of the West; and beauty, creating a space that is designed to inspire.
