George & Cynthia Woods Mitchell Library
Family Place Library Dedication
On Thursday, Feb. 15, Mitchell Library was formally recognized as a Family Place Library!
Library staff have been working hard the past year and a half, including travelling to New York for intensive training, to earn the George & Cynthia Woods Mitchell Library a place among more than 500 sites across 31 states committed to serving as a hub for healthy child and family development within their communities. The library now features an early literacy play area to encourage child development as well as a new collection of multimedia materials for babies, toddlers, parents, and caregivers.
Branch Manager: Donna Dzierlenga ext. 6307
Due to the growing demands on the South Regional Library, a new branch in the western area of The Woodlands was approved. The George & Cynthia Woods Mitchell Library opened to the public in the summer of 2005, and today serves more than 35,000 cardholders.
After a nomination by Congressman Kevin Brady, the branch was chosed as a finalist for the 2017 National Medal for Museum and Library Service by the IMLS. Also in 2017, the Mitchell Library joined the Family Place Libraries national network, which provides the community with resources to help families nurture their children's development and early learning.
