"May the Fourth" Star Wars drop-in craft & paper games
9:00am - 1:00pm
May 4th has become unofficial Star Wars Day (as in, "May the fourth/force be with you!"), so we are celebrating it with some drop-in fun! Make a mix & match Star Wars character, a Darth Vader mask, or mini puppets of your favorite characters, and as a bonus, do Star Wars themed crosswords, connect-the-dots, word searches & more!
Play with our Star Wars Robots!
HAPPY STAR WARS DAY!
We will celebrate May the Fourth all morning by inviting our patrons to give our new BB-8 & R2D2 Sphero Robots a test drive! While you're here you can also do some Star Wars crafts and paper games to get in the spirit! These robots are part of our circulating collection - which means you can check them out to take home!

Children who have entered grade school journey towards being readers, but they still love listening to stories, and doing so aids in literacy skills! This program is designed to support your emergent reader by sharing a sample of stories & series that are geared toward various levels of early readers, & get them excited to use their new reading skills on the sequels later. Stories are followed by a craft, and we finish up the 60 minute session with a snack.
