As part of its yearly Literacy Project initiative, the Rotary Club of Lindenhurst recently purchased and presented dictionaries to every third grade student in the Lindenhurst Union Free School District.

The Rotary Club’s Literacy Project is made possible through donations from the Lindenhurst Rotary Club, the High School Interact Club and local businesses. When Lindenhurst Rotarians presented the dictionaries to each class, they discussed the Lindenhurst Rotary and Interact Club’s international, national and local service projects as well as community events. They also discussed the benefits of using the dictionaries when reading and writing. They introduced the students to the special features in the dictionaries, such as sign language, Braille and a map of the United States.
