Terrace Public Library (BC) Goes Live with Evergreen

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Norcross, GA –May 5, 2008

The City of Terrace has a population of approximately 13,000 people and is located 550 miles northwest of Vancouver British Columbia. The first library was founded in 1929 and has resided at its current location in Lower Little Park since 1969. It reported 210,195 circulations for 2006, the latest provincial data available. The figure at the top of Terrace Public Library’s OPAC is of an ancient Killer Whale that can be seen carved on a rock in Kitselas Canyon on the Skeena River. The drawing is believed to be about 10,000 years old and predates European settlement in the area by about 50 centuries. The Terrace Library is appreciative of the Kitselas band for giving them permission to use the design.

The SITKA OPAC is here.

Evergreen is an enterprise-grade open-source ILS initially created to support Georgia PINES, a consortium of over 270 public libraries.
