Star Wars Reads
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 on October 18th beginning at 5pm with games, crafts, stories, activities, and more! Costumes are highly encouraged.
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.
Says, Youth Services Librarian, Sam Maskell,” Star Wars is extraordinary in that its popularity covers such a broad range of ages. It’s one of the rare fictional worlds that is exciting for young children to discover and still fascinating and entertaining for teenagers and adults to enjoy.”
This program is free and open to the public. For more information call the Library at 802.463.4270, email [email protected], or go online to rockinghamlibrary.org.
