Prime Time Family Reading targets children ages 5 to 10 in a six-week series of reading and discussion programs and includes sessions on fairness, greed, courage, cleverness, and determination. Families meet with a storyteller and a discussion leader to explore children’s literature, learn good read-aloud and storytelling techniques, and engage in group discussion.
The program will be held at the Henderson County Schools Professional Development Center, 631 N. Green Street, next to the Thelma B. Johnson Early Learning Center. The program begins at 5:30 p.m. Dinner, books, and giveaways are provided each week for families. Childcare is available for younger siblings.
Prime Time Family Reading Time is supported by grants from the Kentucky Humanities Council, National Endowment for the Humanities, and grants from the Institute of Museum and Library Services through the Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives and the Raymond P. Preston Family Foundation.
