At a time when so many of us are lost without spell check, the library will  celebrate those who can spell the old fashioned way—standing in front of a crowd with a number pinned to their shirt.  “For the Spell of It,” one of alt+library’s First Friday events, will be held at the North Sacramento Library (2109 Del Paso Blvd.) on April 6th at 7:00 p.m.  This is a spelling bee for adults, and with a twist—cheating is allowed, for a price—for $1 you can ask a member of the audience for spelling help and $5 gets you 20 seconds with a dictionary.  Any funds raised will benefit the alt+library Friends group which supports fun and innovative library programs for adults.   Prizes will be awarded for first and last place–Book Lovers Scrabble and a dictionary respectively.  First, second, and third place also net you bragging rights and alt+library swag.  RSVP at or register to compete at
