Thank you Shantanoo.  Very useful information.
However, allow me change my question a little bit.

Which library is the biggest library among those who use Koha?
Let us count collection size, readers number and annual circulation items only.

http://www.koha.org/about-koha/case-studies/nelsonville.html said:
The Nelsonville Public Library in Athens County, Ohio have been large
contributors to the Koha project. The library has 7 branches,
including a mobile book mobile. The library has 250,00 items and
approximatley 650,00 issues per year (based on 2003 figures)

Any further information?
