May the Fourth (Star Wars Day)

This super-cool May the Fourth display is brought to you by generous members of our community who decided to loan their stuff to the library instead of the other way around! A galaxy-sized thank-you to everyone who contributed.

We'd especially like to thank Morinville Online and Lucasfilm - because of Morinville Online's support, Lucasfilm reached out to donate some Star Wars merch for us to display and pass along to our contributors. Scroll to the bottom of the page to see what they sent us!

Want to win a crochet Baby Yoda? We've hidden them around both our Star Wars displays - some in the cage in the Town lobby, some in our own display case. Come in (SAFELY - masked and social distancing, please!), check out the cage and display case and see how many crocheted Baby Yodas it all adds up to. Then, submit your answer to enter the draw to win your very own!

If you can't come in or don't feel comfortable, you can still enter! Use the photos below to figure out how many Baby Yodas you can find and enter the draw.
