QR Code Scavenger Hunt
You likely know what they are, you just don’t know the name. QR stands for quick response. It is a square barcode that, once scanned with yohttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifur smartphone will redirect you to a website http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifor a snippet of information. This week is Teen Tech Week and the teen librarian is inviting you and your family to do our QR Code Scavenger Hunt! Normally, Teen Tech Week (sponsored by the ) and teen programs are open to teens only, but this is so awesome I just had to share it with everyone. You will need a smart phone and will need to download a QR code scanner application. There are many out there that you can download for free. Next, go to the Teen and Adult Reference Desk on the second floor and scan the first code! It’s that easy. There are ten QR Codes in the library and they are pretty big, so you will need to stand back a bit to get the codes to scan properly. Depending on how well you know the library, you’ll need around 20-30 minutes to complete your quest. Follow all ten clues and at the end you will be rewarded for your search efforts! All ten codes will be available for scanning fun at the library through Sunday. Go ahead give it a try.
