Star Wars Reads Day at Bonner Springs City Library in KansasFriday, October 18, 2013
On October 5th the Bonner Springs City Library in Kansas celebrated the second annual Star Wars Reads Day, a national event dedicated to literacy and of course – all things Star Wars!
Sideshow was proud to participate via Steven and Margaret Allen of Timewalker Toys and Collectibles, who provided several Sideshow pieces from their collection to put on display, and even donated a few Sixth Scale figures for raffle off to lucky Jedis!
Activities included storytime with Star Wars books, photo opportunities with the local 501st chapter, unique crafts such as ‘origami Yoda’ and ‘make-your-own-lightsaber’, and festive array of snacks.
Margaret of Timewalker remarked, “What really struck me is how pervasive Star Wars has become. Every generation there had different perceptions of the films and their legacy.”
A big congratulations to the Bonner Springs City Library for making the event a huge success!
