Summer Reading Program

CCL Summer Reading Program

Youth ages 3-12 are invited to join the

Colby Community Library Summer Reading Program 2018!

(Register, IN PERSON, Beginning June 5)

Reading Record Program for Ages 3-12

We invite children ages 3-12 to join the Reading Record Program.  Keep track of pages read or listened to on your reading record and be eligible for access to our “Backstage of Prizes” at the

Reading Finale on Thursday, July 26 at 10:00 a.m. in the RCU Community Room.

(A minimum of 500 pages must be read and recorded to be in the prize drawings.)  Prizes are on display in the library.  The reading program is based on honesty—record only the pages you actually read or have read to you!

Books need to be checked out from the Colby Community Library to be used for the reading record program. 

Please read at your appropriate level. You may begin checking out and reading books when you register.

*New this year:  there is no deadline for registration. However, only books checked out AFTER signing-up may be counted. The earlier you register, the more pages you can read and count!


(Readers reaching the ROCK STAR Club will have their names in the Finale’s “Backstage of Prizes” drawing container first; we will then work backwards through the clubs, ending with the HARMONICA Club members.)

ROCK STAR CLUB:  Read or listen to 4000 pages

GUITAR CLUB:  Read or listen to 3000 pages

DRUMS CLUB:  Read or listen to 2000 pages

BANJO CLUB:  Read or listen to 1000 pages

HARMONICA CLUB:  Read or listen to 500 pages


Create artwork for our special “CD” wall.  Start with the white CD we have provided in your book bag.  You may use paint, markers, crayons, or colored pencils.  Additional items can be added, but please make sure that all items are securely glued.  Include your full name on the back if you want the CD back at the end of the program. Be creative!


A Libraries Rock! Activity Booklet will be included in your book bag when you register.  Complete 5 activities from each section, have it signed by a parent or guardian, and return it by Monday, July 23 at 5 p.m.  Prizes will be awarded at the Finale for CCL Super Stars with 30 activities completed.


Visit our children’s department to see our jar of rocks.  Fill out a slip when you visit the library to guess how many rocks there are.  (Limit: one guess per day) The guesses submitted will be checked, and the winner and runners-up will be able to choose a “Rocky” prize at the Finale!


Registration, IN PERSON, starting June 5 is necessary for the CCL Summer Reading Program.  Stop by the library to register—no phone calls please, as you need to 1) sign up and fill out your reading record information, 2) pick up your free book bag with CD & activity booklet (while supplies last), and 3) start checking out books!

A TEEN summer reading program is available for those 13-19. “Libraries Rock!” is the theme.  Stop in the library for details and to view the prizes. Registration also begins June 5 in person at the library.  All program materials due back by July 23.

The Colby Community Library staff is looking forward to supplying great books, movies, magazines, and CDs to you this summer!  We hope to see you and your family often!  Questions?  Call 223-2000 to inquire.
