Craft supplies will be available to create something while watching a movie.

Saturday, Oct. 11, is the official Star Wars Reads Day. At 10:30 a.m., a Star Wars-themed story time is planned. There also will be plenty of Star Wars crafts from 10 until noon, along with more surprises. Those who attend are encouraged to come dressed as their favorite character.
