ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany's new Police Chief volunteers to entertain and teach kids in East Albany.   Chief John Proctor read to about two dozen kids at the J. L. Litman Funeral Home's summer reading program.

This is the tenth year that Shirley Litman has hosted kids in the neighborhood for reading fun. She invites community leaders to help.  

"I just love reading and I love children. And I feel like there is nothing else as important as reading," said Reading program coordinator Shirley Litman.   

Chief Proctor gave the kids coloring books and some good advice to live by. All kids are invited for the reading program every Tuesday and Thursday at 10:00AM through July 16th at the Litman Funeral Home on East Clark Avenue.
