The Rangeview Library District of Colorado marked the grand opening of its new Anythink Huron Street Library with a wide-ranging ceremony with prominent speakers, an adult story time and Manick Sorcar's Laser Light Magic. It was attended by a number of dignitaries which included U.S. Representative Jared Polis, Adams-County Commissioners Skip Fischer and Larry Pace, State Sen. Lois Tochtrop, State Rep. John Soper and area mayors.
The event's theme, "A Celebration of Light" was inspired by the design of the 25,000 sq. ft. building that contained the new library. "Anythink is a place where you can find more than just books," said Rangeview Library District Director Pam Sandlian Smith, "you can play video games, download audio books right to your ipod, read quietly by a fireplace, or interact with information - not just be a passive recipient of it". The ribbon-cutting ceremony took place at 1 pm followed by event ceremonies which were open to public estimated to be over 2000 visitors.
