Star Wars Day at Fondulac District Library
Fondulac District Library announces its annual Star Wars Day, which celebrates reading and one of the most epic sagas of all time. The popular all-ages event will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 6, at Fondulac District Library in East Peoria.
Free activities and programs for all ages will run throughout the day and include Jedi training, Star Wars crafts and games, an Interstellar Bazaar, prize drawings, Beat Saber on Oculus Rift, and much more. Special guests from the 501st Legion, the Rebel Legion, and the Mandalorian Mercs costume clubs will be in attendance and available for photographs. Additionally, members of the Technophobia robotics team, a local First Tech Challenge (FTC) team, will participate in a presentation and demonstration of the real-life “droids” they design, build, and take to competition. The library also offers Star Wars-related books and movies on display and available for check out. The Friends of Fondulac District Library also hosts a fundraising sale with Star Wars-themed treats and gifts.
