POMONA, CA. — October 5, 2009 -- Auto-Graphics, Inc. (OTCBB: AUGR) (Pink Sheets: AUGR), a technology innovator providing library automation solutions for over 36 years, today announced that Grant County Public Library in South Dakota has selected AGent VERSO™ for their integrated library system (ILS). They will be upgrading to AGent VERSO from a Winnebago Spectrum system provided by Follett and have opted for the Software as a Service (SaaS) hosted delivery method, which provides full system support and maintenance, allowing them to focus on expanding patron services without the additional cost and complexity of addressing technical support issues.

Also, the Auto-Graphics’ team was extremely helpful and patient in accommodating our library's individual needs,” says Robin Schrupp, library director. “This is a giant step for our library and we are very excited to have the opportunity to utilize this technology and expand our services to meet the needs of our community...and beyond!”
