Fraser Valley Regional Library is hosting a halfday training workshop later this month in Ladner for anyone that would like to get involved in the Next Chapter Book Club.

The initiative, funded by Delta Literacy, hosted by FVRL and supported by Deltassist, is coming to Delta this fall.

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 members learn, make friends and have a lot of fun doing it.

Staff from the Down Syndrome Research Foundation will conduct the workshop, which includes an extensive review of the Next Chapter Book Club model and a demonstration book club so those in attendance can see one in action.

If you would like to become a volunteer book club facilitator, contact Shirley-Ann Reid at reidsa@telus.net.

If you would like to become a book club member, attend the training workshop on Friday, Aug. 24 from 1 to 5 p.m. at the Ladner Pioneer Library.

The club will meet on Fridays, from 2 to 3 p.m., beginning Sept. 21 at Ladner Pioneer Library.
