An Evergreen upgrade is coming this week!

Beginning Wednesday, November 25, 10:00 p.m. through Sunday, November 29, all Evergreen Indiana servers will become inaccessible to member libraries and their patrons as the upgrade process begins. 

All services that rely on connection to Evergreen Indiana ILS for authentication will be unavailable for new transactions.  These include, but are not limited to services like Overdrive.  The Evergreen app and catalog will also be affected.

So for those patrons who make heavy use of the electronic services of our library, check out items prior to Wednesday November 25th.

For everyone else, also keep in mind that anything associated with the “My Account” feature including lists, holds, receiving notifications, etc. will not be available for the duration of the upgrade timeframe.

The Evergreen Indiana Library Consortium is pleased to announce the launch of a community-wide online book club. Patrons of Evergreen Indiana libraries will connect with other library patrons and community members through the enjoyment of reading and discussing great books. Book club members vote on the selections relating to lifelong learning, social issues, literature, psychology and other user-submitted ideas.

The book club is free to join. Free eBooks are available for download via the Freading eBook platform for patrons of Evergreen Indiana public libraries. Links to Freading are in the book club forum. Patrons will need a library card to download a book. Library patrons may also borrow the book in print or audiobook from their local Evergreen Indiana library.

Sign up here. The first discussion started on Oct. 29. Members will discuss “The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek” by Kim Michele Richardson. Club members typically read two chapters per week, so they can join at any time without falling behind.





We have added hyperlinks to our What’s New page on the website. We hope this will help with at-home shelf browsing, and for placing holds.


A Copier that Does Color, Wireless and Scanning!

The library has new copier! This device has several new features: it can copy in COLOR, it can print documents from your PHONE, and it can SCAN a document right onto a thumb drive. We’ve already had a patron print documents directly from their phone today, so it is ready to go.


Just added for Evergreen Libraries!

The number 1 source of information on businesses and people for small business owners, marketing professionals, researchers and job seekers.  ReferenceUSA helps user create marketing plans, conduct competitive analysis, raise funds and locate people.

As part of the new Evergreen upgrade, your checked out items will now renew automatically! You will receive an email/text/call (whatever you have selected) stating if an item was renewed, or if someone has a hold on it. We hope this will be one less thing to worry about, especially during the Christmas season.
