Logs is free and works well. You will need someone with a bit of technology
skills to get going. We decided not to do it ourselves so contract with
ByWater Solutions to manage the catalog for us but many libraries around
the world don't hire a service provider.

For more information go to

https://koha-community.org/ for information.

There is a large community in Koha with people ready and willing to help
you. Joining the various discussion groups will help you. I think they are
easily accessible on the Koha site.

Also, there are several libraries and library networks in Oregon and we
would be happy to share information with you.

My question is what kind of free library catalogue programs are available
and how well do they work?

I'm a library board members rather than a Librarian. It was recommended
that I join this group to ask questions about software for a library

In Douglas County we are facing library closer and we are trying to find
ways to give patrons access to some library services after the closure.

One of the things we now need to work on is acquiring library computers and
a catalogue program for the books so we can still check them out to
patrons. (Rather than switch the library to a reading room model when no
books can leave the building).

It has been stated in various library meetings around the County that there
are free library catalogue programs available but I've never any additional

Thank you for any information you can provide.
