Bethesda, MD September 8, 2011 The Clint W. Murchison Memorial Library in Henderson County Texas has chosen LibLime Koha to replace their legacy Athena system.

Lorie M. Lee, head librarian of Henderson County Public library is welcoming the opportunity to work with LibLime and to use LibLime Koha. She stated, "LibLime Koha was the best choice for our library because it will be easy to transfer to, it will have great support, and it will give staff and patrons a great system to use.

About Henderson County Public Library

The Library resides in the old Post Office building at 121 S. Prairieville St., in Athens, TX. The location is an aged building that has served its purpose since 1973. It continues today with the private support of the Friends of the Library and the Public Library Fund, Inc., and other civic groups and caring citizens who quietly offer their dollars or time, or both, to insure the Library's operation. The location has the charm of a small southern town while still retaining many of the qualities of a larger city. The success of this Library comes solely from its community that it serves.
