Second grade students at Rutherford Elementary School recently received books from the Monticello Kiwanis Club.

With the assistance of retired Rutherford teacher Doris Motl, the Kiwanis members get involved with the Read Around the World Program by purchasing and distributing books to the second graders.

The program's goal is to encourage students to continue their love of reading and expand on comprehension skills during the summer months.
