Mary Danko, Library Director at Abbott Library spoke of her decision to move to Koha:
"My biggest fear about moving to Koha was how the staff would adapt to the new system. They love it! Learning Koha was very intuitive and there are so many features that help us with our work flows. I've been so impressed with the Koha community. It is easy to find answers to questions and there is so much great sharing that gives tips and tricks. And since going live we've been hearing great feedback from our patrons."
