VR Experience @ GPL
Posted on 12/10/2023
VR Experience @ GPLThe Glendale Public Library is gearing up to offer grant-funded access to virtual reality (VR) experiences! Library staff and community partners will present a series of VR open houses, as well as three monthly VR programs for teens, adults, and/or seniors. The content of these programs will be driven by open house feedback, so don't miss your chance to tell us what 
you want.

Virtual reality, which allows interaction with a simulated, three-dimensional environment via technology, is becoming an increasingly popular tool for creativity and active learning. Given the demand for makerspace and STEM programming in the 2022 Glendale Library Community Assessment, VR is an exciting means of meeting that demand. Our six Meta Quest 2 headsets and manual controllers come with over 20 entertainment and educational applications, including National Geographic Explore VR, Ocean Rift, Vermillion, Moss, and Apollo 11 VR.
