                          DIGMICHNEWS FINALIST
The MacDonald Public Library is one of five finalists in CMU Clarke Historical Library’s Digital Michigan Newspaper digitizing competition.  Votes are counted using the hashtag #DigNewBaltimore on Twitter and postcards.  If we were to win, the New Baltimore-New Haven Star (1926-1941) and the North Macomb News-Press (1946-1955)  would be digitized and available online.

The Voting Process:
1.  Each time a user sends a tweet, including the hashtag #DigNewBaltimore, it will count as one vote. Voting will take place January 23-28.
2.  There is also a mail-in alternative to Twitter voting. A postcard—with a Michigan image, include #DigNewBaltimore in the message space, can be 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.
3.  Unique, handmade Michigan-themed postcards may also be sent. One postcard from each finalist community will be chosen Most Artistic and Best Refrigerator Art and posted on January 23rd; the community they represent will not be disclosed until after the voting on January 26th is tallied. The 1st place postcard for each category will receive 500 votes for their community and the 2nd place will receive 250 votes.

Questions can be directed to the library at 586-725-0273.
