The First Annual San Lorenzo Library Community Spelling Bee will take place on Saturday, October 13 at 1 p.m. No pre-registration is necessary. You may enter as a beginner or an expert, depending upon your level of spelling expertise. Prizes are two $50 Borders gift certificates donated by the Friends of the Library–San Lorenzo Area. For more information about the Bee, call the Library’s Information Desk at 510-670-6263.
You might also want to warm up for the bee by watching “spelling bee” movies with your friends and neighbors. The San Lorenzo Library will be showing Spellbound on Saturday, September 29 at 2 p.m. and Akeelah and the Bee on Satuday, October 6 at 2 p.m. Spellbound chronicles the story of entrants in the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Akeelah is a charming and inspiring story of a young woman who uses her talent to rise above her circumstances.
These programs are free. All are welcome.
