The Sanibel Public Library is offering some virtual reality experiences in the coming weeks.

Patrons ages 10 and older can stop by the tech area on May 14, 18 and 25 from 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. to test drive a VR viewer for five minutes per session. VR is a computer-generated simulation of images that creates environments that allow people to be “present” in an alternative environment; it starts with the real world and overlays objects with 360-degree video that captures an entire scene.

The “Blu Deep Sea” VR Experience is planned for May 14 and 25.

The annual Summer Reading Kick-Off Party will be held on May 26 from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Youth, from babies to age 18, are invited to participate in the program, even if they cannot attend the party.

As the library’s “Your Library Reimagined” project continues, the facility is open for business. Services including computers, printers, high speed Wi-Fi, newspapers, puzzles, and reference services are all available. The other half of the library under renovation is expected to reopen in the fall.
