The Mitchell Park Library is hosting its first ever Teen Movie Night from 6:15 p.m. to 8 p.m. on May 19.
The movie “Big Hero 6″ will be shown in the Midtown Room at the Mitchell Park Library, where free snacks will be provided.
The Movie Night is a part of the Teen Tuesday event series, in which teens can participate in fun-themed meetings, including “Crafts for a Cause” and “Doctor Who Night.”
According to youth services librarian Christine Pennington, the events occur every first Tuesday of the month.
All teens are invited and encouraged to come and get involved, according to organizer and youth services librarian, Christina Grove.
“We are always looking for teen input,” Grove said.
According to Grove, the library is not sure how many people will show up to the movie night because it is the first event of its kind. However, they estimate around 20-40 people.
“Since this is one of the first movie nights for teens at the Mitchell Park Library, we aren’t sure what kind of turn out there will be,” Pennington said. “But we are hoping many of the teens will bring their friends and enjoy some relaxation time at the library.”
There will be more teen movie nights in the future according to Pennington.
“There will be more movie nights throughout the year, and the next one after this Tuesday is July 7th at the Rinconada Library in the Embarcadero Room,” Pennington said. “We will have ice cream bars and be showing Mama Mia.”
According to the City of Palo Alto website, teens can either register in advance or just drop by.
