Spelling Bee Sunday

Don't forget the 4th Annual Friends of the Claremont Library Spelling Bee is next Sunday, March 29th at 2pm in Claremont's Taylor Hall, located on Indian Hill Blvd. just north of Claremont High School.

The Friends of the Library will also be announcing their 2009 On the Same Page book before the Bee's conclusion. Last year's community read was Distant Lands of Our Fathers by Bo Caldwell.

Here's a video from Claremont Community College showing last year's Bee. Judy Wright shows up early on, and Councilperson Linda Elderkin makes an appearance at the 2:00 mark. It looked like Hai Muradian from The Ravelers was there, too:

The Friends of the Claremont Library are also asking for book donations for their next semi-annual book sale April 30 to May 2:
Our next semi-annual book sale will be at the end of April ~ can you help us by contributing your unwanted books, DVDs, CDs or anything else you might run across during your spring cleaning? When you bring your donations to the library, please ask at the front desk for a receipt - so that you can claim your donations as a tax deduction. The staff will not place a value on your books and other items - you will need to do that yourselves.

All of the proceeds from the Friends' book sale and bookstore are applied towards funding special programs, purchasing current books and movies and presenting you with annual events such as Claremont: On The Same Page and the Spelling Bee.

Please help us if you can ~ we would be most grateful!!

Friends' Day (of the Book Sale): Thursday, April 30 4-8 p.m. (Friendships can be purchased at the door)
Open Sale: Friday, May 1, 10 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Saturday, May 2, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m
