Prime Time Family Reading

Prime Time Family Reading introduces 6 to 10-year-old children and their families to the humanities through storytelling and discussions that build the foundation for a lifelong love of reading and learning. During a Prime Time program, a storyteller reads a children’s book and then families are guided through discussion to personally connect with literature through open-ended questioning. These programs model strategies for continued family bonding through literature and provide families with critical information for continued reading. 

Prime Time is a nationwide program. Beginning in fall 2023, Delaware Humanities is piloting both English-language and bilingual English/Spanish Prime Time programs in Delaware. 

English-language pilot program: New Castle Public Library 

Bilingual English/Spanish pilot program: Georgetown Public Library
