Somers Library Finds a Home for Every Book

SOMERS, N.Y. — The Somers Library sold thousands of books at the library’s 30 th Anniversary Party Saturday, but what will become of the orphaned remainders?

“We’re sending a third of the children’s books to the Bedford Hills Penitentiary so the mommies can read to their kids when they visit,” said book sale co-Chair Sandy De Sena. “The rest will go to St. Ann’s Parish in Jamaica.”

“The young adults fiction and art and science books are going to BOCES [Boards of Cooperative Educational Services],” she continued. “They can take as many as they want.” BOCES provides a broad range of special education services to 712 of the state’s school districts. Somers is in the Northern Westchester-Putnam district.

“Most of the adult fiction and non-fiction is going to the local nursing homes. And the rest will go to the Cancer Society,” De Sena said. “We’ve made a home for every book.”
