Get More with QR Codes at the Mill Creek Library

By Christa

We are working hard to provide a fresh, current, and relevant borrowing collection for the Mill Creek community. This means that there are fewer books on our shelves as we rebuild our collection. Fortunately, Sno-Isle Libraries has many online resources available to meet your information needs. At the Mill Creek Library we’re using QR codes to help you take information with you without adding to your load!

Two of our highlighted resources will get you set up for the academic year:

  • CultureGrams – Detailed information on countries and states including photos, videos, and more
  • Historical Newspapers: U.S. Major Dailies - Access historical runs of major newspapers including The New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, and The Wall Street Journal.

As so many things shift to online, we want to make accessing these resources easier for you. When you use your phone’s camera or a QR reader app, the resource that you’re interested in will launch in your phone’s internet browser. No navigating our website or having to stop and ask. If you’re not at the library, you will land on the page to enter your library card number and PIN/password for access. If you use the QR code in the library, you’ll be taken directly to the resource.

Stop by during our open hours with your library card and smartphone to grab a QR code. You can use it to launch subscription resources from anywhere, with year-round 24/7 access!
