Albany - - While many students are back in school trying to keep up their grades, a group of Albany youth want to help others learn how to read.

Youth in Action for Healthy Lifestyles are organizing a dictionary and book drive for people in need.

They're trying to collect 1500 books and donate them to children in the Dougherty County School system.  

"Because some people don't know how to read and we tryring to help them know how to read by giving them reading books and some people need dictionaries because they don't have dicitionaries to look up words from," says Jarmarqis Frazier.

 If you would like to donate a new or used book or dictionary, you can drop it off at the law office of Willie Weaver or at Lippit Funeral home in Albany.
