It's the end of the school year but that doesn't mean it's time to put down those books.
It’s the kickoff of the "Summer Reading at New York Libraries" program. It’s a partnership between 1,100 public libraries and neighborhood branches all across the state.
State Education Commissioner John King says more than $1.7-million kids and teens took advantage of the program last year.
Children can pick up reading lists and join in activities at their local libraries.
