Throughout 2013, Humanities Washington is expanding Prime Time Family Reading to public libraries around the state. Spring programs recently wrapped up at the Shoreline Library in King County and the Shadle Library in Spokane. Photographers were on hand to capture sessions at both locations.

Prime Time Family Reading is a unique six-week, humanities-based program of reading, discussion and storytelling at public libraries that emphasizes the importance of families reading together to discuss significant cultural and ethical themes. The program creates a precondition for future learning by empowering parents and guardians help their 6- to 10-year-old children enjoy reading and improve their reading abilities.

A special thanks to the Wockner Foundation and the Avista Foundation, whose generous support helped launch the Prime Time program here in Washington. If you’re interested in supporting this work, email Development Director KayLee Jaech, or visit our website to donate now.
