Hobbit Day

The Long Awaited Party is finally here...

Celebrate Bilbo and Frodo's birthday with us with a viewing of The Fellowship of the Ring and other fun activities and snacks.

We will be finding out our names in Dwarven Runes and pin the ring on Frodo and Bilbo

Hobbit Day is observed annually on September 22.

Hobbit Day is the birthday of the hobbits Bilbo and Frodo Baggins, two fictional characters in J. R. R. Tolkien’s popular set of books The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. In the books both Bilbo and Frodo were said to be born on September 22, but of different years. Bilbo was born in the year of 2890 and Frodo in the year of 2968 in the Third Age (1290 and 1368 respectively in Shire-Reckoning.)

The American Tolkien Society first proclaimed Hobbit Day and Tolkien Week in 1978, and defines them as this: “Tolkien Week is observed as the calendar week containing September 22, which is always observed as Hobbit Day”, but acknowledges that Hobbit Day pre-dates their designation

You can check out The Hobbit and other Tolkien books at the Library
