The Rowan County Literacy Council will hold a two-session tutor training workshop Tuesday, Sept. 29, and Wednesday, Sept, 30 in the Stanback Room of Rowan Public Library.

The training sessions will take place from 9 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. The registration fee for these two sessions is $25 to cover the cost of materials.

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

Orientation materials will be sent to you on the literacy program and the role of volunteer tutors in helping adults to read or to learn English as a second language.

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