Have you ever wanted to have story-time with Darth Vader? Have you ever wanted to meet real superheroes and find out where they got their powers from? Have you ever wanted to hang out with real Jedi Knights as you work to protect the galaxy?
If you love Superheroes, Science, or Star Wars, then you’re going to love what the Phoenix Public Library has to offer this month! As a part of their library card extravaganza, the month of September is going to be packed with all things geek! The only tickets you need to get in can be found on your library card! If you don’t have a Phoenix Public Library card, do not fear! They can sign you up at the door (it’s free!), as you waltz your way into the a geek’s paradise.
Here are some of the programs the Burton Barr Library (that’s the big one, off Central and McDowell!) will have in store this month. I’ll even be there with my own science surprise!

Star Wars Reads Day III: Jedi Reading Academy
Saturday, October 11th

Families who love reading, and a certain galaxy far, far away, are needed by the Library Rebel Alliance to help defeat the Galactic Empire! Padawns from across the galaxy will complete their Jedi training by mastering the force through various quests and receive certification establishing them as the true guardians of reading.
If there is one thing that I’ve learned about the librarians of Phoenix, is that so many of them love science, and they’re all Super Geeks! This month promises to be spectacular in all things science and geek, and I can’t wait to see all of the little superheroes, galaxy protectors, and science fighters in action!
