Library Loves… More Books.

You choose, we buy!

Tell us what's missing from the collections, whether it's a classic text you think every library should have, or a title that just never seems to be on the shelf when you need it.

Please be aware that books can take approximately four weeks from date of request to appear on the Library's shelves.
