Valerie Burnett, Data Migration Librarian at ByWater Solutions, recently commented on the migration:

I'm very excited for the Sunapee School libraries. I think on Koha, they'll have a lot more power to do much more, both on the back end and in the student-facing pages."

Kalleen "Kal" Marquise, Aspen Implementation Specialist, also commented on the migration:

It was exciting to work with these schools to create a one stop virtual library experience for their students. I'm looking forward to seeing what they do with Aspen's Web Builder since they have so many great resources - like story times and databases - to share with their students."
