If you would like to see your public library carry this title, first go to
your library's website and make sure that it is not in their catalog. If it is
not in the library catalog then find out how to make purchasing suggestions
online and make a suggestion! If this service is not offered online, ask for a
patron request form the next time you visit the library and fill it out!
--The form you need to fill out may be called a variety of things: patron
request, item request, purchase suggestion, or something similar.
--Sometimes it's easier to ask a main library instead of a suburban or branch
--You'll have a better chance of a purchase at a big library than a small one
which needs to get rid of books to save room.
--Titles published in the past year are more likely to be purchased.
Librarians want their purchases to have a long shelf life and so are weary of older
--If you do suggest an older title, make sure to comment that it is a
"classic" and will be checked out for years to come.
--Don't give up if you feel that your suggestions are ignored. Your voice
will eventually be heard!
--Tell all of your like-minded friends to make purchasing suggestions too.
There is power in numbers.
