QR Code Scavenger Hunt

QR code (abbreviated from Quick Response Code) is the trademark for a type of matrix barcode (or two-dimensional barcode) first designed for the automotive industry in Japan. QR Codes can hold links to websites, events to add to personal calendars, phone numbers, email address links, and geolocations, and text (plus many many more uses!)

Stop by anytime between now and Friday at closing to turn in your scavenger hunt answers! The QR Codes are up for the hunt around the library! Don’t have a phone that can read QR Codes? That’s fine, I have adapted the hunt so that everyone can participate! Just see the table set up by the entrance to to the library for an answer sheet and instructions.

The first clue is “Patience you must have young Padawan. Out of folded paper am I made. May the books be with you!”
