Langley Sunrise Rotary has provided over 22,000 dictionaries to Langley’s grade four students.  Rotary member, Grant Gilmour, brought this literacy opportunity to the club with the plan to hand out 1600 dictionaries each year.  Fourteen years later the electronic age has taken its toll and teachers find paper dictionaries aren’t as useful as they once were.  Continuing to support the Langley School Foundation, the club has opted to help fund the Summer Reading Program. Surveys have found that students’ reading skills drop during their absence from school. This funding gives deserving grade four students their choice of 10 books to keep and enjoy during their summer break.  Coordinators for this program tell of students who pick out books to share with their siblings.  One recipient exclaimed “this is the first book I’ve ever owned”.
