Bring the FUTURE to your library by checking out VR (Virtual Reality) Headset from the South Dakota State Library!

SDSL has received two “Oculus Go VR” headsets from a grant through Oculus to fourteen Western State Library agencies. VR (Virtual Reality) in libraries allows librarians and their patrons an opportunity to explore and create best practices in promoting the use of educational VR content in the library setting. It is also part of a continuing effort to develop programs of STEM related technologies for public libraries and their communities.

Coordinate your checkout with another South Dakota library and communicate with other patrons across the state. Use the headset in conjunction with a summer reading program. Your library may purchase approved apps. by contacting the SDSL.  

These headsets are not recommended for anyone under the age of thirteen and should only be worn for thirty minutes at a time. A user agreement and liability waiver must be signed by an adult for any minor child thirteen years of age or older to use the device.
