So we have a pretty awesome library. The space is nice, the collection is excellent, and there are some really amazing librarians. Such as those who come up with events like this: Star Wars Reads.
I know, right?
Come to the library, do some cosplay... you don't feel alone because all the librarians are also dressed up (it was mostly all the younger librarians, go figure ;)
play with some Legos....
do some sing-alongs
(Star Wars themed, of course)
(the same librarian Karl also gave an
awesome dramatic reading from The Strange Case of the Origami Yoda)
But the most awesome item on the agenda started with the making of one's own life saber
(out of a pool noodle and duct tape of course)...
Then, when your light saber done, prepare for your Jedi training session with
Jedi Master Ben Kenobi! Freak out! Well, I freaked out.
Then it got kind of awkward because yeah, Darth Vader also came in to give lessons, and while that doesn't exactly work with the cannon, this guy made up for that by
being super serious and in character.
Eventually the large group proved too unwieldily, and they asked the big kids to sit and wait for a bit, but the bonus was that they eventually got some semi-private Jedi training.
|Vader's looking on like, "I need to get those young ones on the dark side like PRONTO."|
He told MG that she had much potential for the dark side. Yoikes.
This pic is totally out of focus because Vader was being a total jerk to me.
I was intimidated. I think he was enjoying it. Fun stuff.
