Prime Time, designed for children six to ten and their families, promotes literacy for all Kentuckians.
Discussion leader Kimberly Curry talks with participants at Louisville Free Public Library - Okolona Branch.
Children under the age of six are cared for and do age appropriate activities in a different part of the library while older children read and discuss stories.
By this time next year, scores of young Kentuckians will be reading better and enjoying it more. That's because Kentucky Humanities, in cooperation with the Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives, is bringing an award-winning family literacy program to ten Kentucky libraries and schools.
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 and by contributions from donors like you. Additionally, we have funding for programs in the Henderson County schools thanks to a grant from the Raymond P. Preston Family Foundation. Additionally, we have funding for six programs in ARC distressed provided by The Steele-Reese Foundation and Emmet and Eleanor Reese.
The application deadline to apply for libraries and schools to host a Prime Time Family Reading Time Program during the 2018 calendar year is September 30, 2017. Click here for application form.
