Have you checked our Catalog, SearchOhio and OhioLink and didn't find the title you need? If it was released in the last year, please use the form below to submit your suggestion for the item to be added to the Library’s collection.

Interested in a bestselling author's latest book or a top box office movie that isn’t released yet? Most popular materials are ordered 2 months before publication. Please do not send requests before that time. Due to the large volume of requests we receive, we ask that you limit your suggestions to 5 per week.
