It has been with great anticipation that these guys have awaited Star Wars Reads day at the Ripon library.
For a quaint little town, I love how much there is to do through this library. They have a reading group for little ones once a week that they have been attending. The groups are split into ages 6 months to 2 years and then I think 2-5 and 5+ or something like that. But it sounds like a blast. I love an opportunity for them to get out of the house and for Evelyn to interact with other kids. And it seems like the majority of young families are really on board with the library, so there are always more families there than you'd expect for a small town. They're also doing some great programming for Banned Books Week this week.
Actually, I know it's silly and I overthink my job, but I think churches have a lot to learn from the way libraries are run-- appealing to all ages, getting people excited about their community, bringing people together, withstanding the test of time, while moving forward with the progression of technology and thought...
Anyway, enough of all that. Now, I present to you Star Wars Reads day:
|A list of the events of the day|
|Is that a kitty?|
|Is that a doggie? Shooting me in the head?|
|There was a Wookiee search throughout the hall...|
|Found Ballet Wookiee!|
|Then we made a Wookiee fortune teller (which horrified Evelyn), Darth Vader Origami (Darth Paper) and colored.|
|Evelyn found a friend, and gave him a kiss. I think she realized he wasn't a cat at this point.|
|She's truly an artist. Look at |
|Growing up so fast! Next thing we know she'll be leaving Tatooine.|
