Suggest Items for Purchase

If there is a book, movie, or CD you think the library should purchase, please let us know.

We welcome suggestions for items that:

  • are not already in the library collection (please check the library catalog first).
  • are already in print and released in the United States (we do not consider items that have not yet been published).

You can suggest up to 15 titles per month.

Suggestions for purchase are evaluated according to the library's Collection Management policy.

After you submit a suggestion for purchase, the library will let you know whether we are able to purchase it or not.

You can find responses to your suggested purchases in the Suggested Purchases area of your account.

It the title you suggested is purchased, you can place a hold on it in the library catalog.

Suggest e-books directly through OverDrive or cloudLibrary.

Both services will show additional e-book titles that are available for the library to purchase.
