Applications are currently available for PRIME TIME FAMILY READING TIME®, an award-winning reading, discussion and storytelling series offered by PRIME TIME FAMILY READING, Inc., an affiliate of the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities (LEH), in partnership with the American Library Association (ALA) Public Programs Office and with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). Based on illustrated children’s books, PRIME TIME —now in its 19th year—is designed to help low-income, low-literate families bond around the act of reading and talking about books. It models and encourages family reading and discussion of humanities topics and aids parents and children in selecting books and becoming active public library users.
Statewide organizations, including state libraries, state humanities councils, centers for the book and library associations, as well as library systems outside Louisiana, are invited to apply. Proposals in response to this opportunity will be accepted through an online process. Links to the proposal guidelines and online application site are accessible from www.leh.org/html/primetime_neh_expansion.html. The receipt deadline for applications is Friday, May 28, 2010.
