The Middle Country Central School District Teachers Association is proud to announce that it will hold a free book fair where hundreds of donated books will be available to students, families and members of the community. The book distribution will take place on Saturday, November 19 at Centereach High School. Students, families and members of the community are invited to search through titles of a wide variety of books between the hours of 9:00am and 12:00pm.
“We are so proud of our teachers for the work they do with our students inside the classroom, but also the work they do with them and the rest of the community outside of the classroom,” said Dr. Roberta Gerold, Superintendent of Schools. “The Middle Country Teachers Association is setting a positive example for our students, giving them the gift of reading and teaching them the importance of giving back.”
The teachers of the District aimed to give back to their community in a way that spread the spirit of reading and critical thinking. Through a partnership with New York State United Teachers, First Book and the American Federation of Teachers, the Middle Country Teachers Association was able to collect more than 15,000 books to distribute.
“We are excited to have the opportunity to give books to a population of people that might otherwise not be able to buy their own during this holiday season,” said Nadia Resnikoff, Dawnwood Middle School. “As a member of the Middle Country Teachers Association, we are always looking for new ways to foster education throughout our community and we are excited to be able to give back in this way this year.”
