Free books for kids

April 14, 2007

Albany - - Students at Albany State University gave away books to school aged kids.

The annual event is called "Book-Nik". Students in ASU's public administration association do this to promote literacy.

Kids played games and got their faces painted during the book giveaway. Organizers say it's all for a good cause.

"Were actually letting kids know that reading is fun and it's fundamental. So this is our event and we are so excited because it's a great turnout," says Organizer Felecity Burns.

A dunking booth was on site to give kids a chance to slam one of the organizers into water.

The event was for children between 3 and 15 years old.
