  • Mitchell Park Library keeps teen and green in mind

    After almost three years of delay filled with construction and legal problems, the Mitchell Park Library is slated to open this November on Middlefield Road and will feature a variety of teen spaces and environmentally friendly features.

    People will have plenty of room to experience the Mitchell Park Library’s new features thanks to the building’s massive size. According to the library website(link), the facility will be approximately four times larger than its predecessor, with a collection nearly twice its previous size. Its children’s area alone is nearly as large as the Children’s Library on Harriet Street.  http://www.cityofpaloalto.org/gov/depts/csd/my_mitchell.asp Photo by William Zhou.
