Register by Feb. 20 for literacy training

The Rowan County Literacy Council will hold a four-session tutor training workshop starting on Monday, Feb. 24, in the Hurley Room of the Rowan Public Library.
The first session is from 7 until 9 p.m. and will cover the literacy program and 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 to be held on March 3 and 5 from 5:30 to 9 p.m. and March 8 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 Feb. 24 orientation may be made by calling the literacy office at 704-216-8266 or by emailing rclc@rowancountync.gov. Please make your reservation by Thursday, Feb. 20.
