Star Wars Reads Day

Description: While the Empire would most likely be displeased, Star Wars Reads Day — a celebration of a galaxy far, far away and the joy of reading — is back! The Rockingham Free Public Library will be celebrating the Sixth Annual Star Wars Reads Day on October 14 from 11am – 2pm. Star Wars Reads Day is an initiative of Lucasfilm and its publishing partners to celebrate literacy and Star Wars.

Reading and Star Wars have gone hand-in-hand since 1976, when the novelization of the original Star Wars movie was released. Over the years, many fans have discovered the joy in reading through Star Wars books.

Costumes are encouraged during this event. There will be on-going activities for kids and families throughout the day along with special scheduled events: at 11am join the Jedi Training Competition and show off your Stars Wars knowledge; at 11:30am kids can take part in the “Wookie-Calling” contest; make your own lightsaber at 12pm (supplies for this activity are limited) and take part in the Costume Contest; at 12:30 make Wookie Cookies and other Star Wars inspired snacks.

This program is free and open to the public. For more information call the Library at 802.463.4270, email [email protected], stop by the Library at 65 Westminster St in Bellows Falls, VT, or go online to rockinghamlibrary.org.
