The Library System welcomes patron requests for specific materials, but the requested material must meet our Collection Development Policy criteria.

Be aware of the following:

  • The Library has 200 popular fiction authors' new works on Standing Order. Check the Multiple Copy Authors to find out if we will already be ordering the book you want. On-Order Fiction titles appear in the catalog prior to publication so you can place a hold before a book comes in.
  • The County Library acquires most of its Books-on-Cd and Large Print Books via Standing Order Programs and rarely buys individual titles. The Library does not buy abridged titles.
  • The Library may not be able to fill requests for items that are not available through its regular vendors who provide free shipping and discounts.
  • The Library has a limited DVD budget. Requested films should be award winners or classics.

Please do not request Out of Print materials or materials with publication dates more than 3-5 years old.
