|Star Wars on display|
In the nearly four decades since the first Star Wars movie was released, the series has made a deep impression on generations of fans. But we probably don't have to tell you that. It is likely that you have seen—or even owned!—some Star Wars-themed items, which range from books and toys to bedspreads, mugs, and even phones! One of our librarians mentioned having the R2-D2 sound as her text alert.
Are you unfamiliar with the series, seeking to revisit old favorites, or are hoping to introduce Star Wars to a new generation of fans? You can check out Star Wars-related books, movies, and electronic resources for all ages in our collection.
Personally, I have fond memories of watching the Star Wars movies for the first time. My dad was a huge fan and couldn't wait to introduce me to them as soon as he felt I was old enough. (I have slightly less fond memories of watching them again on the bus during various school trips.) When Episodes I-III were released in the early 2000s, my father and I made sure to go to every one in the theater, even though we felt they didn't live up to the original.

While adults and teens are welcome at all events, Silver Spring will also have adult-focused events, which include a screening of Return of the Jedi at 1 pm. They can also participate in Star Wars coloring for adults, as well as a trivia contest with an opportunity to win cool prizes.
See you Saturday—May the Force be with you!
