Prime Time Family Reading Program

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 National Endowment for the Humanities and the Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives, is bringing an award-winning family literacy program to 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 Clark and Clay County public schools thanks to a grant from PNC Foundation. We have Steele-Reese Foundation funding for six programs in public schools in ARC distressed counties in 2020/21.
