The Rowan County Literacy Council will hold a four-session, tutor-training workshop starting Monday, Sept. 23, in the Stanback Room of the Rowan Public Library.

The first session is from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. It will cover the literacy program as well as the role of volunteer tutors in helping adults to read or to learn English as a second language.


At the end of this orientation, participants will have the opportunity to sign up for the next three sessions, which will be held on Sept. 30 and Oct. 2 from 5:30 to 9 p.m. and Oct. 5 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The registration fee for these three sessions is $25 to cover the cost of materials.

In order to be certified as a tutor, participants must attend all four sessions.

Reservations for the Sept. 23 orientation can be made by calling the literacy office at 704-216-8266 or by emailing rclc@rowancountync.gov . Make your reservation by Sept. 19.

Adults 16 years and older who need help with reading or learning English should also call the literacy office for information on its program.
