The Joliet Public Library recently received the American Library Association Excellence in Library Programming Award at the ALA Annual Conference in New Orleans for the popular event, “Star Wars Day,” which took place on June 2. It includes $5,000 and a citation of achievement.

Star Wars Day was chosen for this award because it is the largest Disney approved Star Wars event in the world. With over 10,000 people attending from several states in the last few years, the event features a parade, meet and greet with authors and artists, vendors, games, live music and demonstrations.

Library staff members attended the conference.
