Cinco de Mayo is not the leading holiday for people of Mexican descent. It commemorates the 1862 battle of Puebla, Mexico, in which French troops were driven back by an army of Mexican veterans and farmers. Mexican Gen. Ignacio Zaragoza, addressed his troops, “Your enemies are the first-rate soldiers of the world; but you are the sons of Mexico, and they are here to take your country.” It was a great battle, but the real holiday of independence is September 16.

Yes, it’s corny, but Star Wars fans love their stories. And do we ever have a lot of them — in the Kids’ library, the Teen LOFT, the Media (AV) section, the adult fiction section.

And that’s not even all of the Star Wars associated titles we have. May the 4th Be With You!
