PRIME TIME Family Reading Time® is a six-week program of reading, discussion and storytelling held in public libraries. The program features award-winning children's books to stimulate discussion about humanities themes and problems encountered in everyday life. Each 90-minute session includes the reading of up to three books by a storyteller followed by facilitated discussion with a humanities scholar.
Programs can be presented in English or as a bilingual Spanish/English or Native American/Navajo program. Each PRIME TIME series typically serves 15 to 20 families comprised of parents and children ages 6 - 12. The program is also designed to include separate activities for pre-school children who are attending with older siblings.
