I don't know where she lives, but I know in NV it's only a request from other branches in the same system. There are 4 different systems I am aware of in NV, Las Vegas being the biggest, but I the colleges are not counted in any of them that I am aware of.
Oh, bummer. We have what you have--the ability to request books (interlibrary loan) from any branch of the county library system--but then we also have "Prospector," which is "a partnership of 23 academic, public and special libraries in Colorado and Wyoming, offering free access to more than 16 million books, CDs, DVDs, videotapes and other materials." It's very cool. I hope Round has access to something like that; I wish you did!
