May the Fourth Be With You: Star Wars Day at the Boise Public Library

Everyone dressed as their favorite character goes home with a free Star Wars comic book from Captain Comics

Since 2011, May 4 has been Star Wars Day, as in"May the Fourth be with you." Celebrate locally at the Boise Public Library in an evening of midi-chlorian-fueled revelry filled with crafts, games from code.org/starwars and robot watercoloring—users draw on a tablet and a specialized robot copies the picture in paints.

Both the games and robot are part of the Boise Codes project, said librarian RE Zickau. "It's kind of the beginning of learning the logic of coding," she added.

Everyone dressed as their favorite character goes home with a free Star Wars comic book from Captain Comics (while supplies last). Plus, members of the 501st Legion: Vader's Fist will be on hand and in uniform for photos.
