The Next Chapter Book Club is coming to Ladner
The Fraser Valley Regional Library is hosting a half-day training workshop for anyone who would like to get involved in The Next Chapter Book Club, an initiative funded by Delta Literacy, hosted by FVRL and supported by Deltassist.
Each week, groups of adolescents and adults, with a wide range of reading abilities, gather in public locations to read with two trained volunteers.
Next Chapter Book Club (NCBC) members are learning, making friends, and having a lot of fun doing it.
Staff from the Down Syndrome Research Foundation will conduct the workshop, which includes an extensive review of the NCBC model and a demonstration book club so you can see a Next Chapter Book Club in action.
To become a volunteer NCBC book club facilitator, contact Shirley-Ann Reid at email@example.com.
To attend this workshop and/or become a book club member, attend the training workshop Aug. 24 from 1-5 p.m. and then come on Fridays from 2-3 p.m. beginning Sept. 21 at Ladner Pioneer Library (4683 – 51 St.).
