Experience virtual reality with your family, friend, or activity group. 

The library has several pairs of Oculus Quest 2 Virtual Reality headsets ready and waiting for you to come and experiment. Book an on-demand experience for your group and discover what virtual reality has to offer! 

Thinking this may be an isolating experience? Though we only offer two headsets at a time, we have the ability to screencast to tablets (which can be viewed larger on a TV) so everyone in your group can see what's happening. 

Virtual reality experiences are hosted in the Basement Creative Lab, located in the west tunnel of the parking garage level (there's a giant mural on the wall--you can't miss it!)

Requests must be made at least one week in advance; please wait for a confirmation email from a library staff member before assuming your time is reserved. Please note that sessions may be no longer than two hours (that's how long the batteries last!). 

The following is a list of apps currently available on the headsets:

  • Beat Saber
  • Epic Roller Coaster
  • Elixer
  • Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes
  • Journey of the Gods
  • Jurrasic World
  • Fruit Ninja
  • Star Wars: Vader Immortal
  • Rec Room
  • Ocean Rift
  • Google Tilt Brush
  • Wander
  • National Geographic Explorer
  • NASA Space Explorers
  • Gravity Sketch
  • Super Hot
  • Sports Scramble

Don't see what you want? Feel free to email us suggestions! Virtual reality is new for us, and we're still learning. 


Kids love to try VR! We recommend VR sessions for children over 8. If you are interested in bringing children to your VR session, here are a few things you might need to keep in mind: 

  • VR goggles are heavy; kids under eight may have a hard time getting the goggles to fit correctly and may complain of head or neck strain while playing. 
  • VR is easiest to adapt to for kids who are already reading; as a parent, you can look at the screencast from your child's VR headset but it can still be difficult to help them navigate their world if they can't read on-screen instructions. 
  • If you're switching between family members, you need to know that the headset's virtual boundaries need to be reset between each player. 
  • VR headsets can occasionally feel disorienting and may cause motion sickness. Sometimes our youngest players do get a little frightened of objects floating in the air around them. 


To book a VR session, go to our room reservations page and select "Media Stations." Then locate the Basement Creative Lab and select your desired date and time.

Indicate that you are interested in a VR session; our staff will let you know if your request is approved or denied (requests are usually only denied if our staff is unavailable at your requested time).
