We carried out near- to mid-infrared imaging and spectroscopic observations of patchy areas in the Small Magellanic Cloud using the Infrared Camera aboard AKARI. Two 100 arcmin[math] areas were imaged in 3.2, 4.1, 7, 11, 15, and 24[math]m, and also spectroscopically observed in the wavelength range continuously from 2.5 to 13.4[math]m. The spectral resolving power, [math], values were about 20, 50, and 50 at 3.5, 6.6, and 10.6[math]m, respectively. Other than the two 100 arcmin[math] areas, some patchy areas were imaged and/or spectroscopically observed as well. In this paper, we overview the observations and present a list of near- to mid-infrared photometric results, which lists [math]12000 near-infrared and [math]1800 mid-infrared bright point sources detected in the observed areas. The 10[math] limits are 16.50, 16.12, 13.28, 11.26, 9.62, and 8.76 in Vega magnitudes at 3.2, 4.1, 7, 11, 15, and 24[math]m bands, respectively.
