FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Duluth, Georgia–July 21, 2016
Equinox is pleased to announce that Johnston County Public Library has been successfully migrated to Evergreen in the NC Cardinal Consortium. The Equinox team completed the migration in late May. Johnston County Public Library includes ten branches and serves almost 48,000 patrons with over 174,000 items.
Johnston joins Cumberland, Neuse, Henderson, Rockingham, and Iredell in the use of the Acquisitions module within NC Cardinal. The addition of Johnston’s 10 branches brings NC Cardinal’s grand total to 153. Equinox is proud to be a part of NC Cardinal’s continued growth!
Mary Jinglewski, Equinox Training Services Librarian, worked closely with Johnston during the transition, providing training on Evergreen. She remarked, “It was a lovely experience training with Johnston County Public Libraries. I believe they will be a wonderful addition and community member of NC Cardinal.”

Today, almost 1400 libraries across the US and Canada are using Evergreen including NC Cardinal, SC Lends, and B.C. Sitka.
