Nelson Public Libraries is offering free access to our Oculus Quest virtual reality headsets for 45 minute sessions in the library. Play games, solve puzzles, go on virtual tours, see the dinosaurs and more.

Here's what you need to know:

  • We currently have two headsets available, with a number of games and experiences. We welcome small group and individual bookings
  • Anyone aged under 16 years must be accompanied and supervised by a guardian
  • Users will be liable for damage caused to the headsets
  • Occasionally, VR experiences may cause motion sickness
  • We will provide information and resources to guide your VR experience. If it is your first time using the headsets, a staff member will show you how to get started
