  • Lithium Nevada donates to the Dictionary Project to Humboldt County School District
    Friday, November 27, 2020 1:00 AM
    The Winnemucca Literary Guild, one of the oldest community clubs in town (only being outdone in longevity by the Century Club) has been in charge of the Dictionary Project for the past 20 years. The Dictionary Project is a nation-wide project where dictionaries are donated to every 3rd-grader in a community. The Literary Guild has been very proud of being in charge of this community event, but 2020 has brought it’s own share of disappointments to everyone and the Literary Guild has not been excluded. Because of Covid-19, older members are staying away from meeting in public and instead staying home to be safe, which led fundraising for the dictionaries in dire straights.
