Hopefully these pics will be self-explanatory, because this is another one I'm posting a while after the fact. Good thing I took pictures.
Basically, a few of my fellow library techs in our school district shared that they were doing displays and activities/events for Star Wars Reads Day, which I had never observed before. So I felt like, "Shit, I guess I better add this one to my October file..."
I mean, I wanna be cool. And Star Wars is cool.
All the other techs were submitting requests for these free giveaways some of the new Star Wars books' publishers were doing. I got some cool card thingies with that new droid, BB-8, that punch out and make little stand-ups of the character. I gave those away as part of the "consolation prize" to all the contest entrants who didn't win one of the 3 grand prizes.
Luckily, my high school library has plenty of Star Wars novels, chapter books, even some nonfiction about the vehicles and creatures, etc.
|BTW, one of my library tech friends noticed my error on the sign above, and I quickly fixed it, my cheeks burning with shame.|
The prizes I gave out were:
- A 6' tall cardboard character stand-up of The Force Awakens' Captain Phasma
- New hardcover book Aftermath: Star Wars: Journey To the Force Awakens by Chuck Wendig
- The Darth Vader head bank you see pictured above, which we used as a raffle box during the contest.
