Virtual Reality (VR) is coming to NOLS! Adults and teens 13 and older will experience immersive, 360 degree video interactive experiences using Oculus Rifts and Go headsets. Examples of the immersive 360 degree headset experiences include movie shorts, First Contact, Jurassic World, The Body, America’s National Parks, Ocean Rift, Apollo 11, Mars Odyssey, Star Chart, Everest, Chernobyl, and many more! VR experiences will be about 15-20 minutes per user and are on a first come, first served basis with a waiting list if needed.

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.

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 can be downloaded below.
