Suggest an Item

We Appreciate Your Suggestions

Each year we add hundreds of items to our collection based on your suggestions. Decisions are based using our board -approved Materials Selection Policy.

The Materials Selection Policy guides the addition of materials for the collection. Each item must meet the needs of the overall collection. Number of similar titles, intended audience, cost, date written or published, etc., are all considered. Library district residents’ requests may be given preference.

Please limit your requests to no more than five per month.
