LOUD LIBRARIANS LEAD! - June Vlog with Amanda (Vermillion Public Library)

Consider bringing Virtual Reality (VR) to your library while viewing the latest vlog episode featuring Amanda Raiche, Youth Service Librarian at Edith B. Siegrist Vermillion Public Library. Discover ideas for programs that introduce the Oculus Go headset to your community.

Are you searching for a way to bring the virtual reality experience to your community? The South Dakota State Library is offering an opportunity for an Oculus Go Headset to be permanently located at your library! The receiving libraries will be announced at 2021 SDLA Conference this fall. To be considered for this opportunity, your library must have previously checked out the headset before September 15, 2021. Contact me to reserve the headset and help your patrons experience virtual reality!

Amanda has an undergraduate degree in Ecology and Field Biology and a Master of Library and Information Science with a specialization in Youth Engagement. Before joining the Vermillion Public Library in the fall of 2020, Amanda worked as the Youth Services Librarian at the Yankton Community Library since 2016. She loves building relationships and serving the families and children of her community and strives to offer something of interest for everyone. She enjoys the variety things that make up a day in the life of a Youth Services Librarian from leading Story Times to school-aged programs that excite children about coming to the library. Amanda is married with two children, Adeline (9th grade) and Victor (6th grade) and enjoys playing games with her family, reading, and walking.
