UPCOMING EVENTS

OUR IMPACT

Listening to the children make connections in the story beyond traditional comprehension was the highlight of the program for me! I was amazed how perceptive even the youngest participants were during the program.

—Georgia PRIME TIME® participant

PRIME TIME® Family Reading Time is a family literacy program that helps economically and educationally vulnerable families bond around the act of reading and talking about books. The program demonstrates a model of reading and discussion designed to encourage thinking beyond the standard who, what, where, and when of the story. The PRIME TIME® program is facilitated in Georgia through a partnership between Georgia Humanities and the Georgia Public Library Service.

This year alone, more than 3,900 children and adult caregivers have attended PRIME TIME® programs at 21 sites across the state, from Cairo to Chamblee.

DONATE

Georgia Humanities recognizes the value of partnerships.

Our ongoing collaborations with cultural and educational organizations across the state broaden our impact and create opportunities for conversation, education, and understanding for Georgians.

Our most meaningful partnership is that with you—our donors. With your support, we share and support programming that enriches lives, minds, and perspectives.

The Georgia roots of one of the 20th century’s most successful songwriters
