May the 4th Be With You

starwarsDo you have the opening scroll for each Star Wars movie memorized? Do you often wear a robe, sandals and light saber to run your errands? Do you regularly practice your Jedi mind tricks on your boss, friends or parents? Do they work?  (Because if they did that would be cool.)  If you answered yes to any of these then you probably already know that May 4th is Star Wars Day and is considered a holiday to everyone living in deep space.

What’s that? You’ve never seen the Star Wars movies? Then I suggest you correct that mistake by checking them out from one of our many library branches. (We forgive you, but only if you’ve been frozen in a block of carbonite for forty years.)

After you re-watch the Star Wars movies check out our May the 4th Be With You trivia contest for teens ages 11 – 18. Each completed quiz is an entry for a prize drawing. The trivia contest runs through May 31st and it isn’t necessary to get all the questions right in order to win. The winner receives a large Talking Yoda Doll which spouts out tidbits of advice at the touch of a button.

Need more ways to celebrate? Try the Origami Yoda chapter books, books about the making of Star Wars and even party planning Jedi style.

Have a Happy Star Wars Day and May the 4th be with you.
