The library regularly reviews these requests and adds newly released popular materials to the collection including items to our Library of Things collection. Is there a book you'd like to read or new technology or piece of household equipment that we don't have in our collection that you'd like to try out and borrow? Let us know about it; some of the best ideas and newest additions to our collection come from our cardholders. If we do not purchase your requested item, we will try to get it for you from another library.

If we purchase the requested item, we will place a hold on it for you. However, submitting a suggestion does not guarantee that you will be first on the holds list.
