On September 22, 2016, staff from 5 Evergreen Indiana libraries gathered at the Walkerton-Lincoln Township Public Library to kick off that library’s recataloging project. It was a very productive day, with approximately half of the juvenile fiction collection being completed! (That’s right! We STARTED with the picture books!) Special thanks go out to Andrews-Dallas Township Public Library, Garrett Public Library, the Indiana State Library, and Noble County Public Library for sending staff to participate!
