Kalamazoo Public Library hosts the Great Grown-up Spelling Bee to benefit Ready to Read, our early childhood literacy program. 100% of the proceeds from this wild and wacky event are used to purchase books for at-risk children in Kalamazoo County. This year marks the 15th anniversary of the Bee.

Julie Howes and Jannette Meyer are back to defend their title. Let’s support them as they spell their way to the top—again.
