In a history making week, the Nichols Library made a little history of its own. We received 19 inter-library loans this week, an all time high for your use of this service. The haul surpassed the record of 16 materials delivered in a single week that had stood since 2014. The range of items you requested was impressive. There were book club selections, books on CD, audio CDs, nature studies, popular fiction and memoirs. Is there an item you want to read, view or listen to that we do not have in our library? There is a good chance we can find it for you through our state-wide network. The New Hampshire State Library’s van service makes it all possible. Can we go for twenty?
