Spelling Bee Winners

       Today, San Lorenzo Library sponsored the first annual San Lorenzo Community Spelling Bee at one o’clock in the Library Meeting Room. Dana McCall (right) of San Lorenzo won the Expert Division of the Bee by spelling “palindrome.” Katie Lin (left) of San Lorenzo won the Beginners Division when she out-spelled a field of seven spellers.

       The two winners both received a $50 gift certificate donated by the Friends of the Library–San Lorenzo Area. The event was presided over by spellmaster, Shawna Shoptaw, who has a background in theater arts. Ms. Shoptaw is the librarian at Canyon Middle School in Castro Valley.

       The second annual San Lorenzo Community Spelling Bee will take place in October, 2008. Ask your librarian for books and websites that will help you become an even better speller. For more information about the Community Spelling Bee contact Susan Rosenblatt or Diana McRae at San Library Library, 510-670-6283.
