Journey anywhere and try virtual reality (VR) with the North Olympic Library System! Adults and teens 13 and older can experience immersive and interactive 360° video using Oculus Rift and Go headsets. Examples of virtual reality sessions include movie shorts, First Contact, Guided Meditation, Jurassic World, The Body, America’s National Parks, Everest, Chernobyl, and many more! Virtual reality drop-in sessions will be held at the Forks Branch Library on Friday, December 27 from 1-3pm.
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.
