Were sending a third of the childrens 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. Anns 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 states 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. Weve made a home for every book.
