The Directors of Athens County Public Libraries
Most people that are familiar with the history of the Koha ILS will have heard of Stephen Hedges, but less will be aware how influential he was in the success of Koha in the North American library space. Without his leadership and willingness to be the groundbreaker as the first Public library to go with Koha in US who knows where we would be. Of course he had people in the library recommending and supporting that decision but ultimately the buck stopped with him.
Carrying on that tradition is the current director Lauren Miller who, by allowing the marvellous Owen Leonard time and resources to work on Koha, is continuing Athens County’s mutually beneficial relationship with Koha.
Out of Athens County Public Library grew Liblime and (please liblimers correct me if I’m wrong) they were Liblime’s first client.
So much respect to Stephen Hedges, Lauren Miller … and all the other librarians and staff of Athens County Public Libraries
