Star Wars Day will be May 4, and the library will celebrate all week with special displays, guessing games and fun for all ages. Have your picture taken with the cardboard cutout of R2-D2 and C-3PO.

Teen Take & Make will offer a free Star Wars Strawbee Kit. Using the provided straw connectors and straws, participants will be able to build a TIE fighter, the Millennium Falcon or design something of their own. Kits will be available beginning May 3 while supplies last. Kits can be picked up at the information desk or the drive-up window.

Sow & Grow for kids under the age of 12 will have participants plant flower seeds in the peat pot that will be provided. The flowers can eventually be planted in their yard, or they can give the pot to someone special for Mother’s Day. This free event will be May 3-8, and appointments are required. The library will have all the supplies needed to get started. Call the children’s department at 330-683-1065 ext. 3617 to request an appointment.

While in the library, be sure to stop by the seed exchange in the adult department. People are invited to swap seeds they no longer want for something new. If you don’t have seeds to exchange, that’s OK too.
