  • How can I request that the library consider buying an item for the collection?

            Ask at the Circulation Desk for a New Materials Request form to fill out, or use the online  form below. Write down as much information as possible (author, title, release date, etc.) The Library Director and Youth Services Librarian will consider each request as the budget allows.
