The Office of Mayor Stephen L. DiNatale is pleased to welcome Literacy Volunteers of the Montachusett Area (LVMont) to its new, temporary location on the ground floor of Fitchburg City Hall, 718 Main Street.  LVMont, a nonprofit organization established in 1973, trains volunteers to provide free, confidential and individualized tutoring to adults in basic literacy and English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL).  LVMont’s new site at City Hall includes a staff office and space for tutoring, meetings, and a lending library.  LVMont was previously located at the Fitchburg Public Library and will return there when the library’s extensive renovations are completed.

In making the announcement, Mayor DiNatale praised this partnership between the City of Fitchburg and LVMont, highlighting how it will benefit Fitchburg area residents who need LVMont’s services and encourage volunteerism that is so important to his administration.  “We are thankful to have the opportunity to provide literacy services to the people of Fitchburg and the region.  With improved literacy skills adults will be able to pursue a better life and future for themselves and their families.  Our thanks to the Literacy Volunteers of the Montachusett Area,” said Mayor DiNatale.

Zwanieke Visser, the LVMont Executive Director, said, “We’re delighted to be at City Hall and be able to stay centrally located downtown.  We are grateful for the support of the City of Fitchburg and Mayor DiNatale which has allowed us to make a seamless transition.”
