Local Children to Take a Look through the Viewfinder & Travel the World

Get ready for your little ones to have an unforgettable field trip around the world, cost-free. Richland Library is partnering with IT-oLogy to offer Virtual Reality Explorers over the 2017-2018 school year at several of its locations.

From the top of Mount Everest to the depths of the ocean floor, this program enables children to engage in virtual reality exploration with Google Expeditions and the Mattel View-Master VR Viewer. Google Expeditions provides access to hundreds of virtual field trips, allowing children to explore natural wonders, outer space, historic events, cities, famous museums and more.

Please join us on the following dates in October:

  • 3:30 – 4:30 p.m., Thursday, October 5 at Cooper
  • 4:30 – 5:30 p.m., Thursday, October 5 at Cooper
  • 10:30 – 11:30 a.m., Saturday, October 7 at Blythewood

Space is limited, and registration for the program is required – either by phone or online. For a complete list of all Virtual Reality Explorers programs, visit richlandlibrary.com.

Keep in mind, the program – as well as the viewfinder that is being used – are designed for children, ages six to eight and nine to 12. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Funding for Virtual Reality Explorers was made possible by a grant through Richland County Government.

Offering state-of-the-art technology, a variety of literary and cultural programs and 11 bustling facilities located throughout the county, Richland Library offers a truly customizable, modern library experience for residents and visitors alike.
