ByWater Solutions Partners with koha-US to raise money for the Koha Community for second year in a row

ByWater Solutions, America’s forefront provider of Open Source library technology support, announced today that their partnership with koha-US raised over $1,500.00 for the Koha Community. 61 Community members participated in the month-long challenge logging over 2,000 miles for the month of April!

By partnering with koha-us for the Spring into Fitness: Koha Community Challenge, we were able to create a way for the open-source community to come together, move, and raise money for a good cause!

Nathan Curulla, CRO of ByWater Solutions, recently commented on the Koha Community Challenge:

We were thrilled to host this year’s Koha Community Challenge! I really needed motivation to start getting back in shape and this was a fun and easy way to do just that with some of my favorite people! Thank you to everyone who helped make this year’s event a huge success!”

Participants logged runs, walks, biking, dancing, yoga, strength training, and moreover the last month.

Barbara Johnson, President of koha-US and Library Technical Services Manager at the Bedford Public Library, recently commented on the event.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's Koha Community Challenge. It's amazing to see Koha users come together to have fun, get fit and support koha-US.

koha-US and the Koha Community

The funds raised from the Community Challenge will allow koha-us to provide a platform for users to share educational workshops. koha-US members also work together to fund new software features in the Koha Community that help staff with their workflows or help patrons connect to library content.

Teamwork Makes the Dreamwork!

The Challenge was open to libraries, vendors, and any library supporters out there! The team challenge brought co-workers together allowing them to sign up as a team. We saw great motivation among the teams! We want to congratulate the Library and Vendor teams who competed!
