May the Force Be with You During Star Wars Month at Goleta Library

Star Wars Month is coming to the Goleta branch of the Santa Barbara Public Library System.

A celebration of all things Star Wars — from the films to books and other related media — takes place during the month of May at the Goleta Library, located at 500 N. Fairview Ave. in Goleta. The library will be suitably decorated for the occasion, and will have bibliographies of the library’s Star Wars material.

Daily Star Wars activities will be available and a month-long scavenger hunt will afford the opportunity to win prizes. The library has a wide selection of Star Wars books, audiobooks and movies available to borrow, including downloadable books and audiobooks that can be accessed from the Library to Go link on the library system’s website at SBPLibrary.org.

Special craft events for all ages will provide materials and guidance for producing a variety of items honoring the Star Wars stories and characters, including:

» Friday, May 9 from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. Age 8-plus. Star Wars pencil case craft. Make your own Star Wars-themed pencil case and hanging Death Star. Pre-registration is recommended to guarantee a spot by calling 805.964.7878.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
