Virtual Reality Station

Immerse yourself in interesting new places and experiences by exploring the Library’s Virtual Reality Station featuring the Oculus Rift. We have a growing collection of recreational and educational games that will introduce you to this unique and transformative technology.

To use the Virtual Reality Station you will need to attend one of our certification classes. These 15 minute classes will introduce you to the Oculus Rift and certify you to start reserving time to use the equipment. The class will cover procedures, safety, handling the equipment and launching VR games.

You can visit the events calendar on the Library’s website to register for one of our upcoming classes. Classes are limited to 5 participant and you must be 13 years or older to attend. You will also need to sign and submit a waiver form after you complete your certification (signed by a parent or guardian if you are under 18 years of age).
After you complete the certification class and sign the waiver, you can reserve the VR station for a 30 minute session on the days it is available by visiting or calling the Information Desk @ 203-594-5003.
