Virtual Reality Demo Sessions & New Meetup Group

LIVERMORE PUBLIC LIBRARY KICKS OFF 20’S & 30’S MEETUP GROUP WITH VIRTUAL REALITY SESSIONS

The Livermore Public Library has launched a group on Meetup.com which will focus on programs designed for patrons in their twenties and thirties.  The first program will be a virtual reality experience featuring the Oculus Rift system from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, October 10, 2017.  This free program will take place at the Civic Center Library located at 1188 South Livermore Avenue, Livermore, CA.  No advance registration is required.

Patrons will sign up for 2-minute demo sessions to try out the Oculus Rift headset and Touch Controllers.  They will be transported to “impossible places and magical worlds” via the Oculus Dreamdeck software.  Other VR software may be available to sample if time permits.  Please note:  the library’s Oculus Rift system is only available for use by patrons aged 13 and up.  

This project is managed by Califa, a nonprofit, and is supported in part by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered in California by the State Librarian.  It is also made possible by the generous support of Facebook/Oculus. For more information on the California State Library Virtual Reality Experience Project, visit www.library.ca.gov.
