BERKSHIRE COUNTY - Third grade students in Pittsfield and Richmond in Berkshire County now have an extra book to call their own.
The Rotary Club of Pittsfield donated dictionaries to the students on Tuesday.
Third graders at Saint Mark School received their copies.
The goal is to help promote literacy.
It also gives many students something they may not have.
“Every child should have a dictionary. Every child should know how to look up a word. How to spell a word and how to use it,” says Jean Haywood of the Rotary Club of Pittsfield.
This is the tenth year the Rotary has donated dictionaries.
