Thank you for your interest in Evergreen Indiana! We agree that this is a terrific opportunity for libraries in Indiana and would like to share it with you.

Applicants must be prepared to upgrade and/or purchase hardware and broadband internet service to comply with recommended minimums. Please see FAQs - Equipment & Software for the current minimum and recommended systems.
