Patron Suggestion for Purchase

If there is an item that Manatee County Public Library does not own and you would like to suggest that it is purchased for the system, please fill out the form below.

All suggestions will be considered based upon these factors: cost, item format, publication date, suitability to library's collection, accuracy and quality, critical reviews, and availability. We recommend requesting most items that are over (1) one year old through InterLibrary Loan. Items that are part of our standing order (popular authors whose books we automatically order) will not be entered as a suggested purchase.

Please visit OverDrive, Hoopla, or OneClick to recommend digital items for purchase.

Please allow 2- 4 weeks before checking on the status of your recommendation.

Thank you for using our Patron Suggestion Form.
