Virtual Reality Demos featuring the HTC Vive

Tuesday, March 28th - North IRC Library
Wednesday, April 26th - Brackett Library

Demos scheduled from 3:00pm to 7:20pm (20 minutes each)


Ever wanted to climb a mountain, hang out on a reef full of fish or be ninja all without ever leaving the library? Now you can with the library's new virtual reality system.

Third grade through college age students only are being given this special opportunity to register for a 20 minute session to experience the Vive VR System. Pre-registration is required and you will be assigned a specific play-time. Please arrive at least fifteen minutes prior to the scheduled time or your session will be forfeited. Spectators are welcome, but pre-registration is REQUIRED to play.


To register, contact Patti Fuchs at pfuchs@irclibrary.org or call 772-770-5060 x4132. In an effort to give everyone a chance at this new experience we will be giving preference to people who haven't gotten to try VR before when scheduling the demos.

Why VR? It's new, it's unique and VR is something that's difficult for people to experience at home (for now). Why Vive? Most people have the biggest reaction when they are able to move around, touch and interact with the virtual world in a natural way.
