Record-Setting Summer at Colby Public Library

Link to to August 1 Marshfield Daily Herald column, "Young readers break library record".

Excerpt: A record number of youths -- 175 -- read the minimum of 500 pages to be included in the prize drawing. These names were placed in a drawing container according to clubs. The 85 Blue Club (2,000 or more pages) member names were drawn first, allowing them to enter the "Gallery of Prizes." Twenty Green Club (1,500 pages) members were in the drawing next, followed by 27 Yellow Club (1,000 pages) members and 43 Red Club (500 pages) readers. Each reader was excited to be able to select the prize he or she desired.
