For The Spell Of It! An Adult Spelling Bee

May 6 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm| Main Library (Traverse City)

Join us for our Third Annual Adult Spelling Bee!

Don’t you just LOVE Spelling Bees? Remember the anticipation, the adrenaline, and the exhilaration? The Traverse Area District Library and Grand Traverse County Parks and Recreation Senior Center Network will help you and a couple of friends relive that childhood rush when you participate in For The Spell Of It,  An Adult Spelling Bee.

New this year, this event has changed from all team members being age 50 and older to (still adults) but at least ONE team member needs to be 50 years and older. See below for a link to the complete rules, spelling practice resources, and registration information for this exciting team event. Registration is required and is limited to 20 teams, so register early!

Please come and cheer on participants, help us make this a fun event!

*Thank you to Paul Stebleton of Landmark Books for designing our spelling bee posters!


Enter as a team of 2-3 or a register as an individual to be put on a team.

You may also call the Reference Desk to register:  231-932-8502
