On Saturday, December 2, three Calgary Public Library locations will be transformed for Star Wars Day: The Library Strikes Back.

This fun one-day event — a free all-ages celebration of all things Star Wars — is your chance to celebrate the upcoming launch of the movie Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Come complete with costume because family-friendly cosplay is strongly encouraged!  

Whether you choose the dark side or the light, the Library will have fun activities for all Star Wars fans:

  • Explore craft stations to create a Star Wars snowflake, build a papercraft porg, or colour an ewok ornament;
  • Pose for a picture with the stormtroopers of the 501st Legion;
  • Meet a life-size R2-D2 at the following times and locations
    • 12-12:30 pm at Saddletowne Library
