The Huntington and Markle Libraries will celebrate a couple of special days in early May. As many fans of the popular film series will know, Star Wars Day is May 4th (for the pun of the famous Star Wars quote “May the Fourth be with you”), and the Huntington & Markle libraries will celebrate with themed crafts at both locations. Dressing as your favorite Star Wars character is encouraged for all library patrons, and make sure to stop by any time from 4-5:30pm to make a Yoda origami or other Star Wars craft. It’s free to participate and open to all ages.
May 3rd-9th is Children’s Book Week, and both libraries are celebrating with events themed around the Dr. Seuss book Wacky Wednesday. From “Wacky” Wednesday, May 6th through “Freaky” Friday, May 8th, kids of all ages are invited to stop by either location and see how many “wacky” things they can find around the Children’s Department or the Markle Library.
