Funding will support the expansion of "Together - Book Talk for Kids and Parents," the Council's family reading program, and the development and testing of a dual language model in Spanish and English.

The New York Council for the Humanitiesâ?? â??Togetherâ??Book Talk for Kids and Parentsâ? is an intergenerational book discussion program that offers a forum for parents and their 9-to-11 year old children to talk about books and ideas at their local library. â??Togetherâ? is co-facilitated by a librarian and a humanities scholar who involve families in discussions about a variety of personal, public, and historic issues through the close reading of selected picture books and novels. The Council requests â??We The Peopleâ? funds to expand the reach of this successful program to New York Stateâ??s growing Latino population by providing a dual language version of the program. The Council would also use â??We The Peopleâ? funds to provide support for those libraries who have completed one â??Togetherâ? series and who wish to continue this program.
