October 8 may seem like a long way away, but it's not too soon to start planning how you can participate in the first ever Everett Public Library Spelldown, a spelling bee for grown-ups to be held at the Everett Performing Arts Center. If you're a pretty good speller--or just a good sport--think about getting a team of three people together to participate for the grand prize. We don't know what that will be yet, but at the very least you'll win the admiration of your friends and family!

The entry fee for teams is $100, but there's no charge to come and watch the festivities, and all proceeds go towards the teen space project at the Main Library. We'll have a cash bar with beer, wine, and soft drinks. So get together with friends, family (over 18), or colleagues, fill out your entry form, and start studying the word lists. Or don't study at all, and just come for a good time.

I just wanted to say that this event is just one of the many, many reasons we LOVE the Everett Library! From the fantastic resources you make available to our community, to the Summer Reading Program, to your staff's AWESOME customer-service oriented attitude, we so much appreciate all you do for Everett. I've lived in 5 different cities, and this library system is by the far the best and most community-oriented I've ever had the pleasure of belonging to. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO!!!

PS A Reading Life is a fantastic blog, too!
