New Sign Marks GRRL~Upsala - complete with QR code!

Friends of the Upsala Public Library, together with Sytek Communications, hung new building signs for Great River Regional Library (GRRL) - Upsala on Dec. 8, 2011. Graphic designer Bernadette Stephenson from GRRL's communications and fund development department designed the signage including a QR code on the street level sign. The code is intended to aid patrons in their search for library resources. Patrons with smart phones can scan the QR code and connect to GRRL's website.  
"Painting the signs was an interesting job," commented Diane Rohde, Sytek customer care team leader. She worked with Upsala branch manager Wanda Erickson to choose the correct colors matching GRRL's logo and the layout and design elements. Rohde also created new signs for the Upsala Cooperative Telephone Association that were hung the same day.
