We’re having fun at the library! Although it used to be that we didn’t allow cell phone use in the library, with our online catalog available on our Facebook page, we’re trying to think of new ways to use our phones and tablets. How about watching a book trailer by scanning one of those QR codes? Now you can!
What’s a QR code? It’s one of those funny looking pixelated squares you see on packages, signs and in magazines.
All you need is a free QR code reader on your phone and you can scan the square to watch a book trailer. It’s that easy! Now you can do more than just read the inside cover to find out if you’ll like the book…why not watch the trailer to get a better sense? (Not sure what a book trailer is? Often, authors will create a short “movie” to let you get readers excited to buy or read their books. It’s not a real movie, so don’t expect it to show up in theatres, but they’re usually quite good!)
Keep your eye out for these to appear in the library in the next few months. And scan away…
