Addie Van Salisbury of the Aspen Implementation Team commented:
Despite having a quick turnaround time for getting McKinney Public Libraries up and running, the whole McKinney team jumped right in and created some seriously beautiful and robust catalogs for adults and children with Aspen Discovery. The McKinney team are already involved members of the open source and Koha community so we are extra excited for them to join our other Aspen libraries in the community."
