Midcoast Literacy Moving to 1100 Washington Street

Midcoast Literacy is moving offices this June to a new location at 1100 Washington Street in Bath’s North End.

After over 10 years at our current location on Wing Farm Parkway in Bath, Midcoast Literacy is moving just a mile-and-a-half away to the back wing of Grace Episcopal Church on Washington Street. “This summer is the right time for a move, “says Don Lader, Midcoast Literacy Executive Director. “While we’ve been glad to rent space from Midcoast Maine Community Action for many years, our new location gives us more space for new uses, as well as greater flexibility in use of meeting room space for trainings and gatherings.”

The new offices at 1100 Washington Street has a larger library area for books and teaching resources; dedicated space in the library where tutors can meet with their learners; and room for new computer workstations that adult learners can use to access online resources. There are also windows in every room! Sharing the newly renovated office area will be Catholic Charities of Maine’s Bath representative Maurice Namwira, with whom Midcoast Literacy often collaborates in our work with asylum seekers learning English. While our new address is on Washington Street, the offices are accessed from Grace Church’s parking lot on Edwards Street, a short side street that runs between Washington Street and Dummer Street.

During the June move, while our materials are in transition from one location to the other, Midcoast Literacy’s offices are closed to the public. We will not be occupying our new office until restrictions are lifted. Midcoast Literacy plans to re-open in our new Washington Street location later this summer, and look forward to welcoming everyone to the new space when health conditions and regulations allow.
