OLEAN — The Olean Public Library invites the community to join in its “Happy Star Wars Day” throughout Monday.

Libraries and organizations historically have had celebrations in-house, but as the library couldn’t let a Star Wars Day go by without a little fanfare they have set up activities at the Olean Public Library’s Facebook all day. Participants can virtually participate in Star Wars related activities, a fashion show, polls, music and stories. The schedule of events follows, and as the motto for the event reminds participants, “May The 4th Be With You.”

• 7 a.m. — Download Hi-Res Star Wars backgrounds for virtual meetings like Zoom. Host your meetings from the Millennium Falcon all day.

• 9 a.m. — Be directed to a curated list of Star Wars eMaterials to check out in the library’s Overdrive catalog.

• 10:30 a.m. — Join us for a Star Wars storytime read by actor Anthony Daniels (C-3PO.)

• 11 to 11:45 a.m. — Multiple Star Wars drawing tutorials.

• Noon — Share with the library pictures of your favorite Star Wars memorabilia, toys, or fan art.
