Prime Time Family Reading Time – A Family Literacy Program
PRIME TIME, a unique six-week humanities-based program of reading, discussion and storytelling at public libraries and other venues, emphasizes the importance of families reading together to discuss significant cultural and ethical themes.
Created in 1991 by the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities, this statewide family literacy program with national affiliates creates a precondition for all future learning by empowering parents/guardians to help their children enjoy reading and improve their reading abilities. Since the early days of the PRIME TIME national expansion, Georgia has held almost 200 PRIME TIME programs in dozens of communities across the state.
PRIME TIME Georgia is supported in part by funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provision of the Library Services and Technology Act as administered by Georgia Public Library Service, a unit of the University System of Georgia, with additional support from The Sandra Dunagan Deal Center for Early Language and Literacy at Georgia College and Georgia Humanities.
