What is a QR Code?
A QR code (short for Quick Response) is a specific matrix barcode (or two-dimensional code), readable by dedicated QR barcode readers and camera phones. The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background. The information encoded can be text, URL or other data. (Wikipedia)

What do I do with a QR code?
Publishers are starting to use QR codes to promote books, so why can't you? You don't need a smartphone to create a QR code, just to read one. Use a QR code generator to make a code.
  • Generate a code to put on fliers to promote book clubs and library programs.
  • Place codes on bookmarks to direct students to your library web site.
  • Combine QR codes with Low Tech Labels! Create a website, blog post, or delicious tag for a book or author, then generate a QR code that sends students directly to that site! Print the QR code on an adhesive label and put it in the back of the book, or on a bookmark or reading list.

*Note: Students will need to download a free reader app like Red Laseror Qrafter to read QR codes.
