On Saturday, December 2, three Calgary Public Library locations will be transformed for Star Wars Day: The Library Strikes Back.
This fun one-day event — a free all-ages celebration of all things Star Wars — is your chance to celebrate the upcoming launch of the movie Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Come complete with costume because family-friendly cosplay is strongly encouraged!
Whether you choose the dark side or the light, the Library will have fun activities for all Star Wars fans:
- Explore craft stations to create a Star Wars snowflake, build a papercraft porg, or colour an ewok ornament;
- Pose for a picture with the stormtroopers of the 501st Legion;
- Meet a life-size R2-D2 at the following times and locations
- Learn to program mini versions of the movie droids: R2-D2, BB-8, R2-Q5, and BB-9E;
- Discover our awesome Star Wars collections including books, graphic novels, and movies;
- Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality demonstrations hosted by VizworX and the VR/AR Association.
Special thanks to event partners VR/AR Association (VRARA), 501st Legion – Badlands Garrison, Robogals, and Red Deer R2-D2.
