A galaxy of things that seem far, far away may not be so far off.

Two technical marvels made the Westport Library's "Star Wars Reads Day" a force to be reckoned with.

Nancy and Vincent, the library's recently acquired humanoid robots that are helping to introduce patrons to the cutting-edge world of robotics and technology, attracted a standing-room-only crowd Saturday.

"C-3PO and R2-D2 could not be with us to join their cousins," Bill Derry, the library's director of innovation, said of the "Star Wars" robots. Instead, he introduced the two "droids" who will be part of the Westport Library's goal of "de-mystifying robotics."

"It seemed like the perfect opportunity to introduce the robots," said Kelle Ruden, the library's programs and community relations director.

"It's a national day called `Star Wars Reads Day' and it really was hatched as a way to encourage reluctant readers to tackle reading," she said. "Everyone loves `Star Wars' (and) there's a whole line of Star Wars books that we're promoting."

Along with books and a cardboard construction activity, the library also screened the last two films in the six-part -- but soon to be more-- "Star War" series: "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi."

"I like R2-D2," said Owen Couturas, an 8-year-old "Star Wars" fan, "and I like the clones ... and I like Yoda."

"I personally relate to Princess Leia," said his mother, Linda Couturas.

"I like Yoda because he can't die," said Kevin Cano, 6, of Westport. "And I also like his ship."
