UPDATE: because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Midcoast Literacy has extended the closure of our Bath offices from March 16 now until at least May 31, 2020.
This decision has been made by the Midcoast Literacy staff following the State of Maine's guidance for businesses to minimize the spread of the virus in our community.
Our staff will continue to work remotely during this time, and we will respond to any e-mails and phone messages that are received while the offices are closed.
Regarding our organization’s operations, the following changes to programming have been announced:
1) Our tutors will be suspending their face-to-face tutoring meetings with learners in the community until at least May 31. 2) The Conversation Café events for ELL learners that were scheduled in March and April have been cancelled. 3) Our scheduled spring tutor training for Read Together (in the week of April 20) and the scheduled Adult Literacy tutor training (in the week of May 4) will both be postponed. New dates will be announced after our offices re-open.
We wish all of our tutors, learners, and supporters to stay safe and healthy, and we look forward to resuming our literacy work together once we return.
