Hi Tasha,

We customize a bit of the OPAC and staff side, but it's usually to hide
information or tweak the display, not adding additional information to the
page. It's relatively easy to use OPACUserJS and OPACUserCSS to change
appearances or hide particular pieces of the page. To add new information,
you must write JavaScript that calls Koha's REST API or a public report,
processes the response, then modifies the page. That's substantially more
complex, though quite possible.

Here's an example of our opac-user.pl JS
The commented out code is a trivial example of using a public report to
modify the page (we hide the "summary note" if the user is not a student).

If you meant editing the actual Perl template, that's also possible, but
then you have to re-apply your modifications with every Koha upgrade.
