Noble County to be built, it was completed in 1908. The library has
experienced a gradual growth in both the book collection and
the number of patrons that frequent it. Starting with 1,000 books,
the collection has grown to over 31,000 different items with
thousands of Evergreen Indiana patrons being served. Although book borrowing
