Suggest A Purchase

We welcome your suggestions for titles that you would like to find at the library. For eBook or eAudio suggestions specifically, we recommend that you use the Notify Me tags in your OverDrive Libby app account in order to be notified should a digital title be purchased. If you cannot find the title in Libby via their Deep Search feature, then it is not available for the library to acquire. For all other suggestions, please provide us with as much information as possible using the form below. Our librarians will carefully consider each suggestion in accordance with many factors including but not limited to budget, availability, space, and the scope of the collection. Due to high volume, we cannot guarantee a response to every suggestion.

Suggestions are reviewed daily, Monday-Friday. Titles selected for purchase typically appear in the catalog within four weeks of purchase (contingent upon publisher’s availability), at which time you can place a request. If you need assistance placing a request, please contact the Ask a Librarian service at 240-455-5451 or

For older, specialized, technical, or out-of-print materials, you may wish to consider using InterLibrary Loan, a cooperative borrowing agreement among library systems. If you need help using this service, please contact the Ask a Librarian service at 240-455-5451 or
