Book a Virtual Reality headset

Nelson Public Libraries is offering free access to our Oculus Quest virtual reality headsets

You can book in for 45 minute sessions in the library to play games, solve puzzles, go on virtual tours, see the dinosaurs and more.

Here's what you need to know:

  • We currently have one headset available for using in the library, with a number of games and experiences. We welcome small group and individual bookings for use in the Elma Turner Library, for up to 45 minutes.
  • Anyone aged under 16 years must be accompanied and supervised by a guardian
  • By completing the form below, users are agreeing that 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

Bookings available for weekdays during our regular opening hours, provided the space is available. Due to staff availability and programming, we do not take same-day booking.

If you would like to use the VR headsets, please complete the form below and we will be in touch to confirm your booking.
