Be A Part of the Koha Community!
The communities built around Koha (and the other platforms we support) have led us to meet and form relationships with amazing libraries, organizations, and staff throughout the world. We have travelled to new places, seen first hand how these people and places serve their communities and patrons, and have worked together to create better tools for people to access information freely. It really is a special thing to be a part of! If you are not involved in the open source community, we invite you to join us in one or more of all the ways there are to get involved.
