Athens Rotary has a special relationship with Amesville Elementary (See story on our Amesville Library Project).  Linda Cochran, Volunteer Library Coordinator at Amesville Elementary School, and Diane McVey distributed the Rotary Dictionaries to both Third-Grade Classes during their regular library time just a few weeks ago.  The 3rd grade teachers are Karli McGrain and Bethany Burley.  Students were excited about receiving them and show their appreciation in the photo above (Karli McGrain's class).  Other pictures (including Bethany's class) can be found in the photo album here.

  Although most of the Rotary Dictionaries were distributed earlier in the 2015-2016 school year, as reported earlier, Linda and the teachers had suggested waiting until the end of the school year so each child had a book of their own for the summer.  A story is always read to every class at the start of their library time so there was the opportunity to discuss the Dictionary and each student was shown where to write their name on the Rotary bookplate.
  The library depends totally on volunteers to have it open four days each week during the school year and on Thursdays during the summer months (same day as food is distributed).  If any Rotarian would like to be a regular volunteer, please contact Linda Cochran, or Diane McVey to get connected.
  Thanks to Diane McVey for the information and pictures included in this story.
