Disabled patrons have faced unparalleled marginalization in Nigerian libraries due to facilities designed for ordinary users, which the disabled find challenging to navigate. As a result, access to serial services supplied by these institutions is constrained. The challenge of libraries is apparent, as seen by the decline of disabled patronage. In the face of this difficulty, they must act quickly to guarantee that their primary goal of fulfilling the information requirements of all classes of people is met. Librarians must re-strategize their serial services utilizing virtual realities in order to remain relevant. The article delves into the practical application of virtual realities and strategies to several aspects of serial services. It examines and recommends solutions to potential problems in deploying virtual reality for serial services in Nigeria. The paper concludes that it is essential for libraries to embrace virtual realities to maintain continuous patronage by disabled users and keep on track with their primary goal.
