Literacy Council recently opens in new home in Madison

MADISON, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- The Literacy Council of Madison has a new home in the town of Madison.

The new location is at 110 N. Main Street beside the Chamber of Commerce.

The organization held a grand opening last week.

The old building on Thrift Road has had issues with the walls, floor, termites and age.

The new building has a computer lab and a new room that will allow tutors to work with students individually.

Judy Mahanes, the treasurer, hopes the new location makes the council more visible and easier for people to get to.

"We think it's going to be great," said Mahanes. "Usually we try and hang out at a restaurant on Main Street so people can come see us. Last week, people were able to come right in to our territory and see us."

The Literacy Council plans on possibly adding more students and a new financial literacy course in the future.

It will be holding a fundraiser a Revalattion Vineyards on Friday starting at 3 p.m.
