Contact: Sean Jones |

​Can you spell F-U-N? Wichita Public Library will present the first Adult Spelling Bee from 7-9 p.m. Friday, November 3 at the Advanced Learning Library, 711 W. 2nd St. This after-hours events encourages adult spellers, word enthusiasts, bibliophiles or people who enjoy a good competition to form teams and compete for serious bragging rights.

Teams of 1-4 contestants will compete in single-error elimination rounds of increasing difficulty until one team remains. The top three teams will win a special prize. Teams are encouraged to coordinate their outfits, pick a fun name, and come out for a night of friendly competition.

“A spelling bee at the library is the perfect event for those of us who love books, words and a good competition,” said Sara Dixon, Adult Programming Manager for the Library. “We’re excited to bring people together for a night of learning and laughter.”

This event is free for the public to attend, but registration for those wishing to compete is required. Call (316) 261-8500 or visit to register. On-site registration will be available from 5:30-6:30 p.m. on Friday, November 3.
