Who? XR is for everyone! Though initially the target audience will be ages 13 and up.
What? The Nevada State Library, XRLibraries and Lifeliqe have teamed up to bring immersive XR experiences and programming to libraries around Nevada, including Churchill County Library.
When? We are up and running now. Stop by the library to sign up for a trial of this emerging technology.
Where? Currently, there are 11 libraries that have received XR equipment; including the Churchill County Library and the Churchill County School District.
Why? Libraries have always been on the cutting-edge of technological deployment. Now, more than ever, success in school and work is dependent on technological literacy and hands-on experience. Our XR program is designed to better acquaint Nevadans with this new technology and broaden their horizons of what is possible in the 21st century.
