ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Students at one Albany school pledged to read 25 books by the end of the school year.

To inspire students to read, Albany Middle School teachers and administrators dressed as their favorite characters, and paraded around the gym to get students excited about reading. 

Students read aloud a pledge promising to read at least 25 books before the end of the school year.

"The 25 book campaign is something we do to encourage children to read from every genres of literature," said 25 Book Campaign Organizer Dr. Jacqueline Thomas. "If they meet the challenge they will have encountered at least one million more words during reading."

Albany High School's cheerleaders helped lead the students in several reading cheers.  Awards will be given out in May if students reach their goals.
