Experience ‘virtual reality’ at the library

Journey anywhere and try virtual reality (VR) with the North Olympic Library System.

Adults and teens 13 and older are invited to experience immersive and interactive 360-degree video using Oculus Rift and Go headsets.

VR experiences are about 15-20 minutes per user and are on a first-come, first-served basis with a waiting list if needed.

Virtual reality sessions are set for 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 10, at the Sequim Library, 630 N. Sequim Ave., and again from 1-4 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 11, at the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St.

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 13-17 must have a parent signed release waiver. Waiver forms are available to pick up in advance at the library.

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.
