Library Thursdays: Next Chapter Book Club

Next Chapter Book Club is an organisation with "chapters" located in the United States, Canada and Germany. The groups are made up of adults and adolescents with intellectual disabilities who meet once a week and read a chapter of a book chosen by the group and then are led in discussion of each chapter. The aims are to increase literacy, comprehension and social skills. And, as everyone who belongs to a reading group knows, it is fun to discuss things we have read and it leads to greater understanding and insight into ourselves, others and life.
The Down Syndrome NSW library is interested in facilitating and supporting similar sorts of book clubs (depending on interest and funding). We could provide book sets and questions and also facilitate bringing interested people together. If this seems interesting to you, please contact the library.
