Books, stamps and Star Wars

The Sloatsburg, NY library and the U.S. Postal Service joined forces to celebrate the 30th anniversary of "Star Wars" this week.

A children's party was organized by the town's Postmaster Rick Wallis and librarian Ann Marie McAnany, according to the Westchester, NY Journal News.

Amid the "Star Wars" books, DVDs, posters, candy, cake and craft-making, the Postal Service sold a variety of "Star Wars" stamps and other items.

As he postmarked stamps, Wallis told reporter Steve Lieberman, "I grew up with 'Star Wars."

Between crafts and stamps, the children and adults munched on sheet cake and drank "Yoda soda" and "Vader punch."

Shown above are Anthony Marsh-Colby and his cousin, Jonathan Marsh-Clifford, looking at "Star Wars" books during the 30th anniversary celebration.
