May 4, 2015, is Star Wars Day! It’s hard to believe that the Star Wars franchise has grown as large as it has since it’s humble beginnings in 1977. This epic space opera, created by George Lucas, has enthralled fans for thirty eight years, and will continue to do so for some time. The Star Wars universe has expanded to include books, comic books, movie sequels (and prequels), video games, merchandise, television series, and theme parks.
Star Wars fans celebrate year-round, but the 4th of May is a special day when everyone can feel the force. How will you celebrate Star Wars day? Maybe with a movie marathon? Throw a party? Make some crafts with your friends and family? Attend a Star Wars trivia program? Share your plans with us on Facebook and Twitter (hashtag #MayThe4thBeWithYou and #manchestercitylibrary)!
