"Migrating from one integrated library system to another is not an easy process. We are proud of and grateful to all those who made this a smooth and pleasant experience," said Ruth Frasur Davis, Coordinator at the Evergreen Indiana Library Consortium. "The staff of Morrisson Reeves Library, Equinox Open Library Initiative, and the Evergreen Indiana Library Consortium all worked together to make this launch a success, and Equinox was an integral part of its completion.
