Let your imagination run wild.
The North East branch library is holding its 2nd Annual "Magic, Space and Swords" program, a Sci-Fi/Fantasy day, on Monday, August 19 from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
The event was started by Matthew Lowder, who started working for the library in February, 2012.
Last year, 12 people ranging in age from teenager to the 60s attended the inaugural program.
"This year, I think we'll double the turnout," said Lowder.
There will be theme snacks including Lambus bread from the Middle Earth and green-colored sugar cookies.
Participants will discuss movies and books, both current and classic works, and talk about why so many of the current ones are being made into movies and why the classics have endured.
There will be a trivia contest with questions for both novices and experts. Prizes will be awarded.
"I had never been much of a Sci-Fi/Fantasy buff until a couple of years ago," said Lowder.
"Most counties including ours didn't offer a lot for Sci-Fi/Fantasy lovers. The Cecil County Public Library has done so much it blows away the rest of the state. I thought this would be one thing to add."
