School is out and summer reading is in at Albany Public Library

The Albany Public Library's Summer Reading Program encourages literacy by rewarding kids for reading from June 28 to August 23.

Prizes and special activities are designed to further engage youngsters in the world of books and reading. Participants register and record their reading in person at any of Albany Public Library's seven locations.

The APL Summer Reading Program has something for all ages:

For Kids Entering 1st through 12th Grade -- Kids and teens get a chance to earn prizes for reading and participating in reading-related activities. They can also visit their branch libraries for special activities, events, and parties.
For Babies and Toddlers -- In the Baby Bookworms program, parents read to their little ones for 15 minutes each day and fill out a reading record. Each child gets a new book in July and August.

For Adults -- Grownups can get in on the summer reading act too through Facebook, Twitter, and Goodreads.
