The Literacy Volunteers Resource Library
Our office, located on the third floor of the Bridgeport Library, offers a wide selection of materials for you to sign out and use with your students. Please email or call Kathy or Lisa to let them know when you would like to come in and check out our tutor resource materials.
Your best resources, however, are our staff, Kathy O’Shea and Lisa Wolfeiler, who have had years of experience working with our students and are very familiar with the newest and best materials in our libraries. They will be very happy to assist you in finding the most appropriate supplements to your instructional program.
