Big Thanks to DK! Star Wars Day is Ready to Go!

This past Friday and Saturday, Star Wars reads Day was celebrated across the US and around the world. But- just in case you missed it- in the words of Yoda, "There is another."
 Friday, October 11 at the Union West Regional Library in Indian Trail, Star Wars Day will happen from 2:30-5:30, with lots of fun stuff going on all over the building! Light saber duels, crafts, coloring sheets, costumes, great original art on display and more!
 Helping to round out things for the event is DK Publishing, who very generously sent out an event pack that was incredible! They sent a bag FULL of Star Wars Reads Day II buttons, 17 books sampling some of the latest Star Wars fiction out there (and with a New York Comic on label on the back- very cool!),  book of punch-out paper models, a guide book to the Clone Wars cartoon series, and a book on the Jedi! But DK did more than that, too! They really seemed to be the driving force behind the idea, putting together event kits (including a Spanish one this year!), and setting up a Facebook page to network librarians and bookstores.
Big thank yous go to Rachel Kempster and Malisa Savanh from DK's marketing team for everything they did for this year's event, and to help this library with our event!
