Children at the InfoZone Branch are trying new virtual reality programming, thanks to a special program created by Elizabeth Tarr, Youth Multimedia Learning Specialist. Tarr received a professional development fellowship from the Library Foundation in 2019. The fellowship let her pursue her certification from the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) and purchase VR equipment to use in programming. While the pandemic delayed most programming, students from an after school program were finally able to try the VR sets late in 2021.

The fellowship was made possible by The Indianapolis Foundation Library Fund.
