How does it work?

  • We welcome suggestions for titles not currently in our collection, available for purchase, and already published.

  • We consider suggestions for material published within 2 years and of general interest to our community.

  • Library staff select and purchase bestselling authors and popular titles– please check our catalogue regularly and place holds.

  • Please note that content produced by streaming services are often not available for purchase on DVD or Blu-ray.

  • If you're looking for out of print items or older titles, please use our Interlibrary Loans service.

  • For ebooks and e-audiobooks, use the “Notify Me” feature in Libby.
