The force was strong with Star Wars fans

EAST PEORIA, Ill. (WEEK) -- -

The force was strong with Star Wars fans at Fondulac Library Saturday, as they celebrated their Fourth Annual Star Wars day. 

It was a family affair. They offered free activities and programs, like a gaming station, crafts light sabers and Jedi academy. Kids met their favorite characters too. One organizer said libraries are about learning. 

"You know it's not usually quite this loud but today is exciting. There's costume people walking around. Kids are just loving seeing the people that they see on the screen and you know we just try to make it a really fun day. Lots of smiles," said organizer Laura Warren. 

Hundreds were expected to turnout. The library puts on the event around National Library Week.
