Simchat Torah Question

I’m a formerly non-observant Jew just recently beginning to do personal study into my religion. I have no connections with a synagogue (I don’t think there’s even one near me), and I don’t know any other Jews. I’m very isolated so I essentially only have the internet to help me, which is terrifying. I’ve been trying my best to observe holidays, and I was a little confused about Simchat Torah. I read that on that day, the last Torah parshah is read, then the first chapter of Bereshit immediately. But the Parshat Bereshit is read the following Shabbat? Is it read twice, or is it JUST the first chapter that’s read on Simchat Torah, or something else entirely? Thanks in advance for any help!
