QR codes at the library

Cynthia Parkhill attaches yarnbombing tag to peace pole at Lakeport Library

The artist’s self-appointed objective: to commemorate the Charter for Compassion and the Lake County Summer of Peace while drawing attention to resources available at her public library.

Her solution: Laminated tags displaying quick-response (QR) barcodes corresponding to books in the library’s online catalog were affixed to a mesh foundation. Also featuring crocheted flowers and a cloth peace symbol applique, the yarnbombing tag was attached to a peace pole at the Lake County Library in March 2012.

To be continued ...

For my Technology in the Workplace class, LIBT 115, I am researching possible uses for QR codes at libraries. What are your favorite uses for QR codes? Share them here.
