History and Literary Arts Research Library and Archive
The NHCC library holds over 13,000 non-circulating titles, with a concentration on the history and culture of the Hispanic/Latino world–from the Southwest U.S, Mexico, Central America, Latin America, Spain, Portugal and other places that influenced and were influenced by Spain.
Located adjacent to the library, the NHCC Archives permanently houses rare books, photographs, maps, and manuscript collections, and currently contains over 300 rare books and many rare artifacts.
Both the library and archives are located in the History and Literary Arts (HLA) program which presents a wide-range of events, lectures, workshops, festivals and activities for children, youth, adults, elder and families. HLA also presents at least two exhibits a year in the halls of its historic, 1937 Pueblo Revival-Style adobe, a gorgeous WPA project building on the NHCC campus.
