provide anonymous access to the contents of the library. break the inheritance of the contents and the library then provide anonymous permission to the contents inside it.

Do you mean each individual item within the library?

The publishing infrastracture also supplied a directory named SiteCollectionsImages, which apparently has this feature enabled.  Trying to get other directories to use it, I believe, may be more difficult.

Hi,
with publishing there is a hidden feature, which is just designed for that.
Anonymous user can access the content (e.g. pages) but can not open e.g. /forms/allitems.aspx
