Have you tried the online catalog World Cat?

Type in title, find a match and click on it. Then it will ask for your zip code. Up will come matches at libraries nearest to you. Of course my list begins with CA and AZ, then it spreads to TX etc. I quit counting after a dozen matches in TX. This will tell you how far it is to the various libraries with a copy, too.

If none are close enough to you, check and see if they will Interlibrary Loan (ILL) some libraries still do this. Be sure your local library will accept ILL. It all used to be free, but most now charge a fee to cover postage and insurance for items.

Or, if there's something specific you want you might see if the holding library will make copy of the page or pages for you.

Also, the Family History Library in Salt Lake City has volunteers who will do lookups, no charge. They do NOT do research, but if you know exactly what you want they will make copies and send to you by email. They do have a copy of that book -- 976.4 V2k. You could have them make a copy of the index page with surname you're looking for. Then if you spot what you want ask them to copy page, or pages, and send to you. Aren't computers and "volunteers" wonderful?

Happy Hunting (^_^)
