Hi Mark,

Welcome to the Koha community! Several libraries have migrated from
Dynix Classic to Koha. Probably the most impressive one (and the
closest to you) is the Stow-Munroe Falls Public Library 
(http://opac.smfpl.org) in Stow, Ohio, near Cleveland. Still a bit of
a trip, but not too far. Nearby, also in Ohio, Barberton Public Library
has contracted with LibLime to deploy Koha, and we're in the process
of migrating their data (pretty much as I write this in fact :-) ).

I'd encourage you to have a look at the Stow library's OPAC for a sense
of what it will do for your users, and if you want to try the back-end,
LibLime has some demos you're free to try out: http://liblime.com/demos

If you're interested in support, the Koha website lists the commercial
providers as well as free resources available: http://koha.org/support/

Let us know if you have any questions.
