V-Lab



Welcome to the V-Lab



The V-Lab is Cranston Public Library's Virtual Reality (VR) lab for exploring the promise of virtual reality.  Our collection includes four Oculus Quest headsets, 30 Google Expedition kits, and two zSpace  screens. 

This V-Lab was made possible in part by a grant from the RI Office of Library and Information Services using funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and by funding from the Mary Ann and Walter Slocomb Fund at the Cranston Public Library Association. 

How to Access: 

The library offers public virtual reality programs throughout the year. Check our calendar to see when the next VR program is scheduled.  

Teachers, scout groups, and other organizations can request a librarian visit to their classroom with our Google Expeditions virtual reality headsets. Google Expeditions is an immersive education app that allows teachers and students to explore the world through over 1000 virtual-reality (VR) tours. You can swim with sharks, visit outer space, and more without leaving the classroom.
