Teens can sign up for 15 minute slots to try out the Oculus Rift at the North Shelby Library Teen Department.  After you register for the program, you will be sent a link to a Sign-Up Genius poll to choose your time slot. These emails will be sent out about once a week.

Rules:

  1. One time slot per person.
  2. 6th-12th graders only. 
  3. Your time is your time -- showing up late to the appointment means a shorter amount of time on the Oculus.
