Albany -- Community leaders took time to read to students at Northside Elementary School in Albany Tuesday.

Lawyer Joseph Carswell read to Mrs. Williams first grade class, as part of National Young Reader's Day. "Quarreling pests, and fighting pests, and smashing pests, and don't be a cry baby pest."

People from all walks of life shared how reading is essential in their career. Northside Elementary School Principal Angela Shumate said "They can be lawyers and doctors, and anything that they want to be, as long as they have the ability to read. Because that is very important in life."

People with many different jobs, Marines, firefighters, musicians, sales persons, all took time to show students how important, and how much fun, reading is.
