To celebrate the one year anniversary of the grand opening of the Mitchell Park Library and Community Center, the entire complex is hosting a free family event, Frozen, on Sat., Dec. 12 from 11-1 p.m.

Guests can pose for photos with the characters from the movie and listen to special Frozen storytimes in the library. A special sing-a-long will include the songs everyone knows and loves from the movie. Holiday themed arts & crafts will be offered by the Community Services Department. The Drop Teen Center will host several games, including a Frozen Just Dance dance-a-thon and a basketball tournament for prizes. Guests can also dress up as their favorite Frozen character for a prize. Ada's Café will participate in the day’s festivities and offer a hot chocolate bar and special holiday treats.

The Mitchell Park Complex—including the Library, Community Center, The Drop Teen Center, and Ada’s Cafe—opened its doors in December of last year and has quickly become a popular resource for the Palo Alto community. Residents have benefited from the library’s extensive media collection and computer labs, the community center’s top-notch rental spaces, the various programs and events hosted throughout the complex, and the teen amenities and programs offered by the Drop Teen Center.

"After the first year of being open, we are pleased to report the Mitchell Park Library and Community Center is thriving. It is an exceptional community asset—inviting and welcoming—and a wonderful place for the community to come together, enjoy a class, learn, and connect with family and friends. There is something of interest for everyone. Stop by and discover the possibilities," said Community Services Director Rob de Geus.
