Stonington Free Library hosts dictionary event for four local schools
Together the Rotary of the Stoningtons and the Mystic Rotary provide dictionaries to Deans Mill Elementary School, West Broad Street Elementary School, St Michael`s (Catholic) Elementary School, and Pine Point (private) Elementary School. This year we have provided dictionaries to 230 third grade students. We work with a local foundation to bus the students to the library where we offer a program which includes a story time, presentation of the dictionaries and library cards, and a scavenger hunt which allows the students to explore the library. Classes are individually scheduled and it takes about 6 days (mornings) to see all of the classes. All of the organizations involved feel it is well worth the time and effort.
This is our 6th or 7th year providing the program.
