What's a QR Code (and why is it in the Teen Zone)??

A QR code is just another name for an updated type of barcode—but it’s faster and has greater storage capacity than traditional barcodes.

You see them all over magazines, especially with ads that, when scanned, link to products’ websites.  Look for signs in the Teen Zone that offer e-book and e-audiobook download help.  Scan the accompanying QR code with your phone and you’ll be linked to our “how-to” YouTube videos.

The books that have been nominated for this year’s Teens’ Top Ten award are stickered with QR codes that link to YouTube book trailers.
