Mayor Lovely A. Warren hosted a news conference on July 30 to celebrate Literacy Volunteers of Rochester’s (LVR) new partnership with Spectrum/Charter Communications.
Spectrum awarded LVR a $50,000 Spectrum NYS Broadband Access and Learning Grant. The contribution allows the agency to extend its Digital Literacy program. The program is a free one-to-one drop-in service to individuals interested in learning basic computer skills or completing computer-essential tasks. The grant will support digital services at Arnett, Frederick Douglass, Phillis Wheatley and Gates libraries.
Joining Mayor Warren for Monday’s announcement was Robert Mahar, Executive Director, Literacy Volunteers of Rochester; Rodney Capel, Vice President of Government Affairs, Charter Communications; and Patty Uttaro, Director, Monroe County Library System.
