The Next Chapter Book Club (NCBC) offers weekly opportunities for people experiencing an intellectual disability to read and learn together, talk about books, and make friends in a relaxed, community setting. Each group is comprised of five and eight people to allow for the development of strong friendships between members. Anyone may join the club, regardless of reading level and ability. Club members take on active roles; together they decide which books to read and how they would like to structure their hour-long get-togethers. Clubs are held throughout the community in book stores, cafes, or restaurants.
