In the fall of 2016, Humanities Washington hosted the Prime Time Family Reading program at East Side library for six weeks. Library staff partnered with Sheridan Elementary school, aGonzaga University scholar, and a local story teller to inspire active thought and conversation between children and families through reading and discussing topics such as fairness, greed, courage, and compassion. The Prime Time Family Reading curriculum was developed by Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities, and program outcomes for participants show both increases in long-term academic achievement, as well as lasting connections with libraries.
