Learning in the Library Spotlight

Today, we're excited to celebrate another achievement from the Library with the new Prime Time Family Reading program. Made possible by a generous grant from Humanities Washington, this initiative serves families with elementary-school-aged children who could benefit from participating in a reading program together with their families. This is especially impactful now as children work to recover academically following the pandemic. Families learn how to discuss ethical and cultural themes and connect big ideas in children's literature with their lived experiences. Prime Time brings families together to share the joy of reading and engage in meaningful discussions, fostering a lifelong love for learning among our youngest members.

In collaboration with the North Kitsap School District, Kitsap Regional Library launched a bilingual Prime Time series designed to bring Spanish-speaking families together to experience storytelling and discussion, promoting literacy and a passion for reading. Through programs like Prime Time Family Reading, the Library builds strong community partnerships while inspiring the next generation of thinkers, dreamers, and doers. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Humanities Washington for making this program possible.
