Star Wars Day is Drawing Nigh!

 The official Star Wars Reads Day II is Oct.4 for schools, and Oct. 5 for libraries and bookstores. But if you live in Union County, NC, chances are, there will be no events in your area on those days. I have not heard from any schools or seen anything from them. There are no bookstores in the area. And only one librarian is brave enough to take on a task this exciting and monumental- me, and I'm not scheduled to work those days. So if you miss out venturing into Charlotte or other surrounding parts during that weekend, do NOT despair!
 Friday, October 11, from 2:30 to 5:30 at the Union West Library in Indian Trail, you can get THE Star Wars experience! There will be character standees, artwork on display, crafts for the whole family. But wait! There's more! There will be members of the 501st Legion proudly representing the best of the Empire in their amazing uniforms! The Lego Store is going to have one of their expert builders on hand to show kids how to make UFOs and space ships! Comic artists Derek & Niki Davis will show off their Star Wars related art from their web-comic, The Ered Adventures! And for a few brave souls, their will be a lightsaber challenge! And the library will, for that one day, have the largest collection of Star Wars literature available for check out anywhere in the Union County galaxy!
  Kids are strongly encouraged to wear their costumes and have a TON of fun! For more information, check out the flyer in this post or call 704-821-7475 or go to the library, located at 123 Unionville-Indian Trail Rd.
 We'll see you then!
