Prime Time Family Reading Program

Prime Time, designed for children six to ten and their families, promotes literacy for all Kentuckians.

Storyteller Mary Hamilton reads to participants at Breckenridge Co. Public Library.

Fleming County librarians register families for Prime Time.

Families discover the story together at Prime Time.

By this time next year, scores of young Kentuckians will
be reading better and enjoying it more. That's because the
Kentucky Humanities Council, in cooperation with the
Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives, is bringing
an award-winning family literacy program to eighteen
Kentucky libraries.

Prime Time Family Reading Time is supported by grants
from the National Endowment for the Humanities and grants
from the Institute of Museum and Library Services through
the Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives, the
Appalachian Regional Commission, and by contributions from
donors like you.

The application deadline to apply for libraries to host a Prime
Time Family Reading Time Program during the 2015 calendar
