JCPL’s virtual field trips allow you to visit far off places, see artistic masterpieces, experience live performances, go behind the scenes and get up close and personal all without leaving Jessamine County. Using High Definition videoconferencing technology, participants are able to interact live with presenters at hundreds of content providers around the world. Virtual field trips provide the opportunity for patrons to experience the history and appreciation of visual and performing arts, explore the sciences, learn about history and more.
