Help us deck our halls—and win Christmas presents!

Here's how it works:

  1. Make a donation to the Ontonagon Township Library in any amount between now and Friday, December 22nd, and receive a blank (paper) ornament for our Deck the Halls challenge!

  2. Decorate your ornament at the Christmas Crafting Station inside the library, or take it to decorate at home, but it must be returned by Friday, December 22nd to be eligible for the contest.

  3. Put your name and phone number or e-mail on the back of your ornament, and include your age if entering the “12 and under” category.

  4. Entries will bedeck the bulletin board in the hallway near the bathrooms.

  5. When the library closes on Friday, December 22nd at 5:00 p.m., a photograph of each entry will be posted to the library's Facebook (

  6. The winner will be determined by number of Facebook “likes” collected, with the “voting” ending at 11:59 p.m. On Sunday, December 24th. (Heart reacts, wow reacts, etc., will also be counted as “likes”.) Entrants are encouraged to hack the democratic process by flooding social media with links to your contest entry.

  7. Winners will be announced on Facebook and notified via phone or e-mail. Prizes can be picked up during normal library hours beginning Wednesday, December 27th.

The contest is open to all ages, with separate prize packages for youth and teens/adults!

The Prizes!

All books are in new or read-once condition. Other items are new-in-box. All prizes are donated items, duplicates of items already in the library's collection, or prizes left over from other programs. No library funds were used to purchase prizes for the Deck the Halls contest.
