The Sheridan School Library welcomes students and staff to utilize our ever-growing and changing collection of reading and learning materials. All classrooms are scheduled for a weekly, or bi-weekly visit to allow time for students to choose books for pleasure reading. The Sheridan Library collection contains both English and Spanish materials. During research units, students have access to a wide variety of books and online resources to assist in their discovery of new knowledge.
Mrs. Resch is the full-time library assistant and technology support person. Mrs. Resch is also the guardian of the fish, a favorite attraction in the library. Ms. Vollmer is the librarian and is here on Tuesday. They work together to encourage and support life-long reading habits, and help students and staff locate materials in the library, as well as make use of online resources. Ms. Vollmer is at three other libraries in the district throughout the week and can be reached by email anytime.
