What is the first step in becoming a Next Chapter Book Club Affiliate?
Complete and submit this inquiry form. Once it is received, we will reach out within two business days to schedule a brief telephone call. We believe that personal contact is better than electronic communication for addressing your questions and discussing your plans. Afterwards, you will be sent a copy of our Standards of Practice and Affiliate Agreement to review. We require a signed Affiliate Agreement before you can participate in the required training.
Who can join the NCBC Affiliate Network?
We use an “Affiliate” model to offer Next Chapter Book Club to communities all over North America and in other parts of the world. A NCBC Affiliate is generally a library, social service agency, or a parents group that has signed our Affiliate Agreement, agreed to follow our Standards of Practice, and has designated a NCBC Program Coordinator to participate in our required training. In some cases, the NCBC Affiliate is a partnership between two or more organizations. We particularly encourage this approach because responsibilities are shared and long-term sustainability is more likely to occur.
