Suggest an Item for Purchase and InterLibrary Loan


Are you looking for a book, CD, DVD, or other item that The City Library doesn't own? Using this form, you can suggest we purchase an item to add to our collection. The City Library may purchase suggested resources that meet the criteria established in our Resource Selection Policy and which support the goals of The City Library's Strategic Plan.


The City Library regularly purchases new releases and best sellers in all formats. The library accepts suggestions for items that have already been released and are not found in the library catalog.


Important Note: The City Library accepts up to 5 suggestions per person each month.


Author solicitation: Authors may submit their books for donation only.
