How much does Dunbar Free Library save you? 
If you want to request something you DON’T find in our catalog, try searching the NH Union Public Access Catalog or NHU-PAC (link on the left). You can check to see if what you want is available anywhere in other NH public libraries. Most of the college libraries have to be searched for in different ways now. If you can’t find it, send us an  e-mail with the title, author if available, format (book, DVD, CD), publishing date if you know it. If you have the time, tell us how you heard about it. We’ll call you when it’s in or to tell you that we can’t get it for you, usually the former.
