Cel­e­bra­tion marks book group’s birth­day

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Points Of View -

Ash­ford Li­brary has cel­e­brated the first birth­day of its Be­yond Words Book Group.

The club helps adults with learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties, and the group meets once a month to read books from the Be­yond Words se­ries. The cel­e­bra­tion took place at the li­brary in Church Road last week.

The se­ries tells sto­ries in pic­tures to help peo­ple with learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties and com­mu­ni­ca­tion dif­fi­cul­ties ex­plore and un­der­stand their own ex­pe­ri­ences.

The story is told by the group mem­bers look­ing at the pic­tures and de­scrib­ing and dis­cussing what they see, so no pre-read­ing is re­quired like other book clubs.

Book group mem­bers are en­cour­aged to bor­row the books to ex­plore them fur­ther.

Cer­tifi­cates were awarded to the group, and mem­bers shared cake and re­fresh­ments.

For more in­for­ma­tion, call the li­brary on 03000 418410.
