Request Items

Request ItemsThe NRH Library seeks to maintain an appealing, engaging collection but occasionally we are unable to anticipate all of the needs of our community. If you're unable to find what you're looking for in our collection, we also accept suggestions of items that might be valuable additions to our collection and provide interlibrary loans.

Interlibrary Loan

Items not available at our Library including books, audiobooks, magazine or journal articles, and DVDs may be borrowed from other libraries across the nation.

Suggest a Purchase (for new items or items in a series)
