When you hear the words "Virtual Reality," what typically comes to mind? Future technology? The next leap forward in technology? Although the answers are yes, Virtual Reality systems are here now and are becoming increasingly cost-effective. Many people have started to invest in this interactive technology hoping to keep pace with an ever-changing world. The library can continue in its place as a wealth-of-information hub: Think and Act Forward. By introducing VR and AR (augmented reality) technology in a library system, many would get their first real introduction to next-generation technology. Outside of conferences or demonstrations, most customers do not get a proper introduction or chance to experience what VR/AR has to offer. The library can be a game changer by creating programs where library staff can utilize these systems to develop interactive and engaging programs. They would see a rise in participation by library card holders and an increase in usage of library systems.
