UTICA- September is national literacy awareness month, so to raise awareness, Made in Utica held a free book jam at Handshake City.

The book jam featured local children's authors, a book swap, and several other fun events.

Organizers for the event said they wanted to give back to the community. "There's no better way to broaden your horizons than picking up a good book. We just wanted to help make that happen," said Katie Reilly, Handshake City Co-founder.  "We love to have kids down here, and thought this was a really good way to give back to the community, to give books to those who can't afford to go out and buy them," she added.

Handshake City's container park has "little libraries" where people can take books home, and add books to.
