Ask for a new library item

You want it, we get it

If we don't have the library item you want in our collection, tell us and we’ll try to acquire it. We will either purchase it or borrow it from another library. We buy ebooks whenever we can as this increases access to titles. 

Before requesting an item you must first check that it is not already available in Library Search. We will not purchase items that we already have.

If you want us to collect an existing item off the library shelves for you, try the Click and Collect service.
