Visitation, Tours, and Browsing

There is a Visitation Application and Policy (Doc file or PDF) that allows visitors, but visitation and tours are limited and by appointment only.

NEFRL does not have regular hours of operation at this time.

Loans, Inter-Library Loans, and Digital Loans

NEFRL does not normally do physical loans of materials, either directly or via inter-library loan.

However, we are the only naturist library that does Digital Lending of select materials.

Just like any other library, loans of any type require a “library card” and we need to check your ID when signing up.  Please see the Digital Lending page for the form and details.  Signing up, and getting the Digital Loans, are both FREE.

Also see our Digital Loan Demo page to watch a NEFRL promotional video and listen to a century-old Edison record on skinny-dipping! This ensures Digital Loans will work on your browser.

Research Requests

If you’re seeking a specific article from a magazine, some pages of a book, or any other “fair use” piece of an item, please use our Research Request Form (Doc file or PDF) and we’ll do our best to fulfill it.  This service is FREE and open to ANYONE.  (You don’t need a “library card” for this, or even be a “researcher” beyond a personal interest in reading the item.)

Research Requests are the easiest and best way to access any of our materials, within the legal constraints.

Research Queries, Questions, and Keyword Search

Don’t know what (specifically) to ask for yet? Or need some help with our services?  Contact Us. We’re here to help.

We do offer an online Search tool but it’s rather limited.  As a Nudist Library Consortium member, we have friends with pretty good search capabilities, so we can still help find what you’re looking for if you get in contact with us.
