Galactic Lock In at the Library

Boba Fett was atypically convivial with the padawans at our Lock In.

Boba Fett was atypically convivial with the padawans at our Lock In.

We had so much fun at our Star Wars Lock In on Friday!

Our padawans built droids, thawed Han, ran an obstacle course, fashioned their own light sabers, and even survived a close encounter with the Empire.

Our gratitude to all the kids who came and a special thanks to The 501st Legion for making the night so memorable.

Just a reminder, if you ever feel like visiting a galaxy far, far away, you can borrow Star Wars movies and TV shows, books, music, and even video games from us.
