Herkimer BOCES teacher donates 324 books collected to help students read at home
March 9, 2016




HERKIMER – Herkimer-Fulton-Hamilton-Otsego BOCES special programs teacher Jennifer Sabin recently collected 324 books and donated them to special programs students as part of Read Across America Day.
Sabin said she made the decision to get books for students after many students said they didn’t have books at home to read for her class’s reading log.

“I got the idea – how awesome would it be if I could give donated books to them for Read Across America week,” she said.

Sabin, who collected the books through a request for donations on her personal Facebook page, donated the books on March 2 in honor of that day being Read Across America Day and Dr. Seuss’s birthday. She hoped to collect about 100 books, but was happy to receive many more and be able to allow each special programs student to select three books to bring home.

“To get 324 is just incredible to me,” she said.

Staff in Sabin’s class counted and sorted the books by age appropriateness to help the students pick books that were at their reading level, Sabin said.

As part of the book distribution event on Dr. Seuss’s birthday, Herkimer BOCES Assistant Superintendent for Instruction Laurie Hedges read “The Cat in the Hat” to students. Sabin also ended the week of Read Across America Day by watching “The Lorax” with her class and providing popcorn and pencils to her students.
