Prior to the release of the latest “Star Wars” movie, the Rochester Public Library is inviting fans to celebrate at a special event on Tuesday, December 17 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. The “Star Wars Party” will feature a variety of activities, including a Star Wars Storytime.

Youth Services Librarian Jon Allen says the party is the perfect event for younger Star Wars fans. “This is something that Yoda of any age could appreciate.”  Allen says this is the third Star Wars party they've hosted, "The movies drum up a lot of interest, and we like to give people in Rochester the opportunity to share that excitement with other fans.”

The event is free and open to everyone and costumes are encouraged. For information about all of the library’s free events, visit www.rplmn.org.
