Hello! I just learned about the following grant opportunity. Prime Time Family Reading Time is an intensive literacy program, requiring quite a commitment. However, Oregon libraries that have participated in Prime Time Family Reading Time have found it extremely valuable, and it was very well-received in their communities.
Family Literacy Program Grants Available
Prime Time Family Reading Time: National Expansion Grant
National Endowment for the Humanitieshttp://www.leh.org/html/primetime_neh_expansion.html
Would you like to help reinforce the role of the family in educating children?
Would you like to help enable parents/guardians and children to bond around the act of reading and learning together?
Would you like to help foster expectations for high academic achievement for children in low-literacy, low-income and/or non-English speaking families and to encourage their parents/guardians to enter or continue their own educational or ESL program?
Would you like to help transform families into active library users and lifelong learners?
If you answered "YES" to any of the questions above, PRIME TIME FAMILY READING TIMER and its 2010 - 2011 phase of national expansion program grants may be ideal for your agency.
