In 2017, the Texas State Library and Archives Commission will again be providing the Collaborative Summer Library Program‘s Summer Reading manuals to Texas libraries. However, instead of providing it on a DVD, the manual will be available to your library on a flash drive OR online with a password. Please take a moment to take this survey to let TSLAC know which way you prefer to get your SRP materials.
The Taylor Public Library also celebrated Star Wars Day with a lightsaber training and fight with balloon lightsabers! They had other games, crafts, and Star Wars materials on display. The day was wrapped up with a showing of The Force Awakens. Sounds even more fun than going to Tosche Station to pick up some power converters!
The entire week of May 2nd-7th was Star Wars Week at the Stewart C. Meyer Harker Heights Public Library. They had Teen Star Wars Cantina, “Mothers Are Out of This World” storytimes, and Star Wars Science.
Here is a picture of the Mandalorian Mercs standing with Master Lisa (Jedi) just after they came to our Homeschool Star Wars Science program.
They wrapped up with the week with a big event on Saturday, May 7 from 2-4 pm. They had Jedi and Sith practice, light saber crafts, Star Wars science, a Star Wars Cantina, games, a “Droid Factory” with Lego Robotics and recycled electronics, costumed characters, games, trivia, and more.
These patrons had a high midi-chlorian count! Looks like a lot of fun. Thanks for sharing with us, Harker Heights!
Check out this great video promoting Summer Reading from the San Marcos Public Library. A videographer that works for the city put a series of videos together at no cost to them and they will be sharing them over social media to help promote.
