Celebrate Star Wars Day

Star Wars Day

Bring the galaxy home on May 4th for Star Wars Day. Staying in doesn't mean you can't enjoy celebrating Luke, Leia, Han, R2D2, Darth Vader and more. Here's five ways to include the library in your plans.

1. Watch Star Wars movies and series, both classic and new.

The library has Episodes I through IX, Rogue One, Solo, as well as The Clone Wars and Rebels, all available for free with your library card. You can check out up to twelve DVDs at a time.

2. Name that Star Wars tune with Soundtracks from the films.Star Wars

Simply choose your favorites from any of the movies, play a snippet of a track, and see if your friends and family can remember which film the selection is from. Whoever names the episode first wins a point. Play until someone earns five points to determine the ultimate Star Wars music connoisseur!

3. Cook up some themed goodies with Star Wars cookbooks.

Constable's Caps and Yobshrimp Noodle Salad are just a few of the recipes from Disney's Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge that you can make at home. Why not try some BB-8 Energy Balls or a Maz Kanata Frittata for breakfast?

StarWars.com also offers recipes for Ewok Sushi, Princess Leia Apple Snacks, and Blue Milk Mando Macarons.

4. Learn to draw Star Wars characters.

The books How to Draw Star Wars and Learn to Draw Star Wars will have you mastering R2D2's look in no time! You can also try your hand at Knitting the Galaxy, which offers fun Star Wars patterns.
