The Resistance needs your help. While on a secret mission, BB-8 was captured by the First Order. Fortunately, he was able to send a distress signal just a moment before he was taken away to a remote Coruscant junkyard. Can you break the sinister First Order codes that keep BB-8 locked up? Resistance prizes given to all who break out! Participation is limited to the first 12 teens who call or visit the library to sign up. There will be 3 groups of 4 teens. Resistance groups can start the challenge at 10am, 11am or 1pm. Sign up as a group of friends, family members, or classmates. Breakout sessions will be held in a closed, unlocked room (with the Young Adult Librarian) for team collaboration without disturbances to the Force.
Calm you will remain, and rescue BB-8 you must!
