Bethesda, MD, November 15, 2011. Valentine Independent School District (ISD), of Valentine Texas, has chosen LibLime Koha. Valentine ISD has selected LibLime as their vendor of choice to implement and support LibLime Koha, as their next generation, open development, Integrated Library System (ILS). The School District explored a variety of free and openly available ILS solutions and after extensive research, decided upon the LibLime Koha flavor, as it is the most feature rich and well-supported open development ILS available.

Margaret Matthews, Big Bend Library Services Director says "Valentine ISD, located in far southwest Texas, is a very small financially strapped rural public school that has a great little library except it has never been automated. It has survived without an OPAC and circulation program until now. We have found LibLime Koha and the School District is extremely excited to have LibLime Koha so we can teach our students and faculty how to access books other than just hunting through the shelves and hoping to find resources they need. Our students will finally be prepared to go to larger communities, colleges or universities and be able to research and be equal with other students."
