Recommendations for Our Collection

Recommend to Purchase      

As a library member you are welcome to make suggestions for addition to the collections. If the recommendation is approved, a reserve will be placed, and a reservation charge of $1.50 will apply to all items in adult collections.

You can help us process your recommendations more efficiently by:

  • Checking the catalogue carefully to ensure that the item is not already held or on order for the collection
  • Specifying in the Request Notes box why you think this item will appeal to other customers. - It's difficult to justify spending public funds for one user
  • Providing the date of publication, and as many other details as possible - most of our customers tell us to buy really new up to date stuff
  • Keeping within the quota of 2 recommendations per month per customer.

Please fill out this Recommendation for Purchase form. Consider the Interloan service for specialised, older and out of print items. A charge of $10 per standard interloan will apply. All other Interloan requests - price on request.

You can now order your own copy of the book you have read in our library through our partners Wheelers Books.
