The force will be with young Moree Community Library users over the next fortnight, with plenty of fun Star Wars-themed activities planned over the upcoming school holidays.

The library will be hosting a two-week-long Star Wars Festival for the school holidays, from September 28 to October 10.

There will be Star Wars displays, take-home craft activities and a Where's Wookiee Hunt at the library throughout the two weeks, as well as movie screenings on the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of both weeks.

"The Where's Wookiee Hunt is an in-house activity requiring members to find the Star Wars characters that are hidden around the library," Big Sky Libraries manager Sally Walters said.

"To enter, members need to collect an entry form from the front counter and write down where the characters are hiding. If all questions are answered correctly, the member will receive a prize!

"We also have our famous take-home craft packs back again for the school holidays. The packs will be available from Monday, September 28 until Saturday, October 10 at the front counter and include a Star Wars Reads activity booklet and stationary items.

"After viewing the Star Wars display children will also have the option of selecting additional items from the craft table to put in their take-home crafts bag.

"It is all happening at the Moree Community Library over the school holidays, so if you're looking for activities to keep the kids entertained or trying to find a way to stay cool, make sure you pop into the library!"

LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales (PG) will be screened at 10am on Tuesday, September 29 and October 6.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (M) will be screened at 2pm on Wednesday, September 30 and October 7.

And finally, Solo: A Star Wars Story (M) will be screened at 2pm on Thursday, October 1 and 8.

With the movies being screened in adherence with the requirements of the NSW Public Health Orders and social distancing measures, bookings will be essential as spaces are limited.
