WHAT'S HAPPENING AT YOUR LIBRARY......  

FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY MEETING HAS BEEN CANCELED AND RESCHEDULED FOR WED. JANUARY 18 AT 5PM.

DIGMICHNEWS FINALIST

The Shelby Area District Library is one of five finalists in CMU Clarke Historical Library’s DigMichNews digitizing competition.  Votes are counted using the hashtag #DigOceana on postcards and Twitter.  If the Shelby Area District Library were to win, the Shelby Independent, Shelby Enterprise and a portion of the Oceana Herald Journal would be digitized and available online.  Three postcard making days—Wednesday January 4, Wednesday January 11, and Saturday January 14 during library hours—will be held in the library’s meeting room. If you are unable to attend, you may purchase your own postcard—with a Michigan image, include #DigOceana in the message space, and mail to Clarke Historical Library 250 E. Preston Street Mt. Pleasant, MI  48859. Cards postmarked before January 16 and after January 28 will not be accepted. Voting on Twitter takes place January 23-28.  Send out a tweet including the hashtag #DigOceana. Questions can be directed to the library at 231-861-4565.
