it is used in large libraries, and also some people on the mailing list have
used it with 50 books at home.  but consider that it's easy to install and 
ready to use.  it takes less than an hour to install.   use koha version 
1.2.2 on an existing linux system.  (there is also kohacd which is a 
bootable ISO image demo version).  http://sourceforge.net/projects/koha/
