Teens can sign up for 15 minute slots to try out the Oculus Rift at the North Shelby Library Teen Department.

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.

This book was telling the stories of different African American teens who experienced segregation in the 50s and 60s. I like this book because it shows how children have the power to make a change in the world and sometimes do better than adults
