We believe in books and in reading.  Our goal is to instill in children a love for reading and knowledge that will lead to a lifelong love of learning.

Students visit the library once a week with their class to check out books, practice library skills, and listen to a story.  Kindergarteners and first graders check out one book.  Second, third and fourth graders may check out two books.  Books are due back the following week during their class library time.  Books must be returned in order to check out new books.  Overdue notices will be sent home periodically.

Students are responsible for paying for lost or damaged books, if necessary.  If a book becomes damaged, send it to the library for repairs; please do not mend books at home.  Have your child put their library books in a plastic bag before putting them in their book bags.

Students are expected to be respectful and courteous to one another and to adults.  The library is designed for the children to find and read books, or use a computer.

Please feel free to contact the library at any time.

Kolling Book Fair 2018

Kolling’s Scholastic Book Fair 2018 was a huge success!  We had a wonderful week with many parents who set up, helped students shop and took down the fair.  A big thank you goes out to all the volunteers. A special thank you goes to Mrs. Lucido and Mr. Cooper for their many hours of help.

Thank you to all the families that came out to enjoy and support our Family Night.  A special thank you to PTO for providing snacks, Mrs. Havens for providing the craft, Miss Simons from the St. John Public LIbrary, and Mrs. Stevens and Mrs. Savitski.  We also want to thank the students that helped out from Lake Central National Honor Society: Alyssa Duerst, Aerone Catolin, Lauren Fionda, Madison Kubiak and Kimberly Wojciehowski.

Kolling collected $328 for the “All for Books” program.  Scholastic will match this donation with books for Kids in Need Foundationand Kids in Distressed Situations.

The teachers appreciate the 98 books that were donated from the Teacher Wish Lists for their classroom libraries.


Birthday Book Club

Celebrate your child’s birthday with a donation of a new, hardcover book to the library.  A special nameplate will be placed in the front of the book with your child’s name and birthday.  Your child will present the book to the library during his/her weekly library class and be the first to check out this special book.  This is a great way to celebrate a birthday, encourage reading, and add your child’s favorite book to our library.

This program is completely voluntary.

A big thank you to all our Birthday Book Club participants for 2017-18:
Rainier, Madeline, Abbey, Landon and Mrs. Stevens.

Accelerated Reader

We are excited about the Accelerated Reader Program at Kolling that is available to students in 1st through 4th grade.  It is easy to use.  The student selects a book (in the library the books are marked with a blue label). After reading the book, the student may take a quiz in the library or their classroom that assesses their reading comprehension.  Each book has an assigned reading level and point value.  The student receives points based on the number of questions that they answer correctly.  Each nine weeks the student can redeem their points for prizes.
