Prime Time Family Reading: Multicultural Outreach

Reading and discussion programs for underserved families at libraries in five states, exploring humanities themes through children's literature.

PRIME TIME supports intergenerational literacy and offers opportunities for rigorous humanities experiences to low-income, low-literacy children and their parents/guardians. This unique 6 week humanities-based program of reading, discussion, and storytelling uses award-winning children's literature and trains scholars and storytellers to facilitate rich, provocative discussions. The goals of PRIME TIME are to: promote the humanities among at-risk populations; enable families to bond through reading and learning together; convert families into active readers, library users and life-long learners. To achieve these goals, help librarians reach out to underserved populations, engage immigrant populations in a meaningful cultural exchange, and build the necessary infrastructure to sustain the program PRIME TIME, Inc., in partnership with the American Library Association, will launch a multicultural syllabus called Common Ground by implementing 20 programs in 5 states.
