Suggest a Purchase


Request an item that is not in our catalog. Due to the large volume of suggestions received, we are unable to purchase all requested materials.

If purchased, a hold for physical materials will be placed for the requester. We are unable to place holds on eBooks and eAudiobooks, so please check Overdrive for your suggested title. Digital material is ordered on or after the publication date. 

Patrons are limited to 5 purchase suggestions per week. 

Items that we will consider for purchase (books, music CDs, Audiobooks, DVDs, Blu-Rays, eBooks, eAudiobooks):

  • Items available for purchase now (we do not take pre-publication/release requests).
  • Items with broad interest for library users across the TRL district.
  • Items published/distributed within the last two years (unless they are a part of a series TRL has already started purchasing). Please use the Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service for older material.
