Virtual Reality in the Library
Journey anywhere with virtual reality (VR) at the Clallam Bay Branch Library of North Olympic Library System (NOLS) on Friday, February 7 from 2pm-4pm. These are drop-in sessions with a waiting list if needed. Adults and teens 13 and older can experience this interactive 360° video using Oculus Rift and Go headsets. Examples of virtual reality sessions include movie shorts, First Contact, Jurassic World, The Body, America’s National Parks, Everest, Chernobyl, and many more!
Using VR has potential safety concerns; participants must be 13 years or older (no exceptions). Adult participants must sign a release waiver, and participants aged 13 to 17 must have a parent signed release waiver. Waiver forms are available to pick up in advance at the library or at www.nols.org/virtual-reality.
VR programming is part of a partnership with the Washington State Library, Oculus, and the University of Washington Information School to bring educational opportunities to library communities around the state. Additional funding for this program comes from the Friends of the Library groups.
