The New York Public Library is looking for 500 people to spend the night in the library to compete in a game called "Find the Future."

Visitors will be split into groups of eight, with the goal of finding three or four out of 100 available objects.

To prove they found the object, players will scan a type of bar code with their cell phones. Then they'll have to write a story based on the object.

The game is to commemorate the library's centennial celebration.
