Thank you to everyone who joined us for the 17th Annual Denise McCoy Literacy Award Event at the Fort Orange Club on November 9th. This year's winner was InvestiGATORS: Off the Hook by John Patrick Green.
The Denise McCoy Literacy Award, formerly known as the Little d award, honors the author of the previous year’s most humorous children’s book as recommended by the Albany Public Library Youth Librarians and selected by the award committee.
Funds raised through this event are used to expand children’s literacy programs in our area and the Denise McCoy Scholarship Fund.
It was so great to be back in person after 2 virtual ceremonies and to see many familiar faces along with some new ones. Thank you to everyone who came out and attended this fun event! To our sponsors, we are humbled by your generous support!
