Literacy Council to hold tutor training

The Rowan County Literacy Council will hold a four-session tutor training workshop starting Oct. 19 in the Hurley Room of the Rowan Public Library.
The first session is from 7 to 9 p.m. and will cover the literacy program and the role of volunteer tutors in helping adults read or learn English as a second language.
At the end of orientation, participants will have the opportunity to sign up for the next three sessions to be held on Oct. 26 and 28 from 5:30 to 9 p.m. and Oct. 31 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The fee for these three sessions is $20 to cover the cost of materials.
In order to be certified as a tutor, participants must attend all four sessions.
Reservations for the Oct. 19 orientation may be made by calling the literacy office at 704-216-8266 or by e-mailing rclc@rowancountync.gov by Oct. 15.
