Here We Go!
“Our library’s been in Evergreen since the beginning. I just want to say I’m impressed by all of you […] We’ve come a really long way. And to get all these libraries together throughout the state of Indiana, you can’t do that without cooperation. You should all be really proud. And I just wanted to say thank you. […] My library and I would never go back. I’m really glad we have this.”
– Karen Kahl, Director, Union County Public Library,
Evergreen Indiana 2014 Central Region Roundtable
The first ever Evergreen Indiana regional roundtable kicked off yesterday at Westfield Washington Public Library. Over 40 staff members from 15 libraries were in attendance. It was a lively discussion, with a lot of laughs and thoughtful sharing, and we appreciate everyone taking the time to gather and share their recommendations and experiences! A special thanks goes out to Westfield Washington for hosting and allowing us to be the inaugural library gathering in their brand new meeting room.
