WEBINAR DESCRIPTION

Today, Joliet's Star Wars Day is a quintessential event for Star Wars fans and the largest public library event of its kind in the world - but it didn't start out that way.

The program was created in 2009 to celebrate the Star Wars franchise with around 300 fans attending. Since then, Star Wars Day has grown to include 200 cosplayers from across the nation, themed music and games, meet-and-greets with the authors and artists of the books and graphic novels, and the opportunity to immerse yourself in the world of Star Wars. The event now draws upwards of 10,000 individuals, all coming together to celebrate this multi-generational phenomenon.

Journey with the program's planners as they share what they have learned in this transition from average library program to nationally recognized event.

Participants of this session will learn how to:


  *   Grow a small program of 300 to a giant event for over 10,000 people
  *   Fundraise to support a large event
  *   Harness the power of partnering with outside groups and similar entities within the community

This free webinar is offered by the American Library Association (ALA) Public Programs Office.
