People of all ages are invited to Ste. Genevieve County Library from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 4, to celebrate Star Wars Day and Free Comic Book Day.
“We have done these events in the past, and they’ve always been a big hit,” said Shawn Long, the library’s new director. “However this is a first that the events just so happen to land on the same day.”
Those who attend will be able to try some Star Wars-themed crafts and snacks, and they also will be able to pick up some comic books as well.
The library’s selection includes a little bit of everything, including Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Star Wars, A Sheets Story and Stranger Things comics.
The library will have 12 different titles to choose from.
It also be showcasing a Star Wars collection which includes countless books and movies that guests can check out after the event is over. The Star Wars event ends at 1 p.m.; however, free comic book day will last as long as inventory is available. Comics are first-come, first-serve.
For more information on either event, contact the library at 883-3358.
