Bring the Aquarium to the Library

“This toolkit will bring the ocean to life for patrons who may not ever be able to visit the aquarium,” said Dustin Landrum, manager of strategic partnerships at GPLS. “Children and parents can put on a headset and explore a virtual ocean – swim with manatees, observe sharks and go deep-sea diving – in the library!”

Points to Remember
