This week, Kelly and Jessie are joined by Lisette Scheer, koha-US 2020 President! Lisette is the System Administration Assistant at Latah County Library District.
We LOVE being a part of koha-US. Below you will find a great quote from their website! Listen today as we talk about all the great ways you can be a part of the koha-US community!
There’s no US without you. As an open-source product, Koha is developed and supported by a global community of passionate people. User participation in the community is key to helping the software grow and thrive. koha-US is here to help drive that participation by providing users in the United States and beyond a vehicle to interact, share, and learn.
