The Rotary Club of Brookings-Harbor handed out free dictionaries to the third graders. Instead of having its regular club meeting Tuesday, the club distributed the books.
Rotary Clubs throughout Rotary District 5110 and the rest of the state have partnered with the Dictionary Project to make sure every third grade student gets one of the dictionaries.
According to The Dictionary Project more than 2.3 million books were distributed across the nation. The non-profit group hopes to reach 4.1 million students this school year.
