In accordance with current CDC recommendations and State of Nevada directives, all visitors ages 2 and up are required to wear masks inside all Washoe County Library locations. Please do not visit the library if you feel unwell or currently have a fever, cough, or shortness of breath.
Due to construction at the Northwest Reno and Sparks libraries, there are currently no events scheduled at those locations.
Experience virtual reality at the library. Each month we’ll feature a different educational or cultural VR experience that explores geography, science, art, history, and more. After trying this month’s featured app, you can explore any of the other available VR experiences including games.
For each VR Studio session, there are 2 time slots for the Oculus GO, 2 time slots for the Oculus Quest, and 1 time slot for the HTC Vive.

Oculcus GO and Quest – Jurassic World: Apatosaurus – “A relic from the past comes to life in a meeting that may be too close for comfort.” Watch this 3-minute VR video and get up close to an apatosaurus.
HTC Vive – Dat So La Lee Virtual Museum – Explore the intricate, hand-crafted baskets by Washo Artist Dat So La Lee in the virtual museum. Created by the University of Nevada Reno’s @Reality Lab.
Registration is required for this event. If the participant is under the age of 18, a parent or guardian must register the participant and also be present to supervise their participation. The manufacturers of HTC Vive and Ocuclus virtual reality equipment do NOT recommend that children under age 13 use their VR headsets. Each VR system is used once and then is disinfected and stored until the next program. In alignment with current CDC and state guidelines, all library visitors age 2 and up are required to wear masks. http://www.washoecountylibrary.us/reopen
