NIH Patient Library

Contact us / Ask a question

This service is intended primarily for NIH patients and their caregivers. Inpatients and their guests may request delivery of a library item from our collection to their room. The library will also respond to outpatient and staff queries that concern the NIH Patient Library collection and services, and will attempt to offer useful direction in response to general questions.

All patrons are invited to suggest books, music, or DVDs for addition to our collection. Thank you in advance for your suggestions!

For help, please give us a call at 301-451-7603. You may also send an email to us at or message us on Facebook. We will try our best to respond to your question by the next business day.

NOTE: PDF documents require the free Adobe Reader.
