Virtual Reality at the Library

February 4th, 6th, 11th, & 12th @ 5:30pm in the Community Room

Note: February 12th canceled.

Virtual Reality comes to the Tiverton Library in February! If you are interested in VR, or just curious about how it feels to experience digital reality, we’ll have everything you need to get started.

The Tiverton library will host four VR events throughout February, where visitors can book a VR experience and choose from dozens of immersive videos, apps, and games. Register for the event to hold your spot and reserve a session with the HTC Vive before it leaves the library!

While you wait, “walk the plank” on PlayStation VR or test-out a Google Cardboard to transform your phone into a VR headset — click here for a list of apps to download before you come!

Please note: use of VR is restricted to patrons over the age of 12 and registration is required. Click on a link below to be taken to that date’s event page and place your registration. Patrons under the age of 18 must have a guardian present to participate.

For more information, call the library at (401) 625-6796, or, contact Patrick Elliot, Technology Librarian, at pelliot@tivertonlibrary.org.

The HTC Vive is generously provided on-loan from the Warwick Public Library, made possible by a Studio Rhode Next Generation Library Challenge grant, awarded by the Rhode Island Office of Library & Information Services and the Rhode Island Office of Innovation and funded by the Carnegie Foundation.
