Equinox announces Evergreen ILS Migrations for the First Quarter 2020

Duluth, Ga., September 1, 2020: Equinox Open Library Initiative is pleased to announce the successful migrations of four new libraries to Evergreen ILS.

In the first quarter of 2020, Keller Public Library of Dexter, Missouri joined the Missouri Evergreen Consortium (MEC), following Barry Lawrence Regional Library and Montgomery City Public Library who both joined the consortium in late 2019. Other libraries that celebrated Evergreen migrations in the first part of the year include Wilmington Public Library of Clinton County, Ohio as part of the Consortium of Ohio Libraries and West Lincoln Public Library in Ontario, Canada as part of the Libraries in Niagara Consortium.

"We've had the honor of providing implementation services to a wide range of libraries this year, and each offers unique and diverse materials to their patronage," said Erica Rohlfs, Senior Implementation Project Manager at Equinox. "While there were unexpected challenges at the beginning of 2020, it was inspiring to observe the resilience of each library and to support these successful migrations."
