Help Someone Learn English

Literacy Unlimited Offers Free Tutor Training      Literacy Unlimited Logo

LVM Literacy Unlimited,  a library-based tutoring program, needs tutors to help teach English to adult Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL).  You don’t need teaching experience or knowledge of a foreign language to be a volunteer.  You do need some training!  This summer, we have scheduled daytime training at Morse Institute Library for 3 weeks in August.

To learn more about the program, join us at the library for an information session Tuesday, August 5, 1:30-3:30.  The tutor training class will follow on Tuesdays and Thursdays, August 7-26, 1:30-4:30 pm.

For further information or to register for the training please call 508-647-6400, ext. 1583 or email literacy@morseinstitute.org.

Historical Books from our Archive Available Online

Thanks to the Boston Public Library, we have made historical books and materials from the Morse Institute Library Archive available online at the Internet Archive.

This digital archive includes historical Natick High School graduation programs, Sassamon high school yearbooks from 1916 to 1950, and biographical information on well known 19th-century Natick citizens.

You can browse the digital archive, or explore other digital local history and genealogy resources offered by the library.

Below, have fun flipping through a digital book from the archive—the 1916 Sassamon yearbook.
