Our school has been using OpenBiblio for over two years and it has 
worked great for us.  They completely redid their reporting system which 
resulted in a loss of some of the reports they used to have but the new 
reporting system makes generating new reports so easy it hasn't been an 
issue.  I did look at Koha but decided OpenBiblio was better suited to 
our needs.

Hey Shane -

I have done a couple of installs of OpenBiblio 
(http://obiblio.sourceforge.net <http://obiblio.sourceforge.net>/) for 
small elementary school libraries that didn't have the $10K for the 
commercial option and felt that Koha was too much for them.  I would be 
happy to answer any questions you have about the OpenBiblio install 

I also know that some of our (VT)  smaller schools, with solid Internet 
access,  have outsourced their library automation for a monthly fee to 
some company in California.
