DHCLS welcomes public suggestions for new items to be added to the library’s collection.

Before you submit a purchase suggestion, please read the following guidelines:

Submission of a purchase suggestion is no guarantee that the item suggested will actually be purchased. Purchase decisions are made depending on various factors, including item popularity, item availability, and available funds, among others. DHCLS attempts to accommodate as many suggestions as possible, but we cannot guarantee that all suggestions submitted will be approved.

Please search the online catalog to see if DHCLS already owns a copy of the title in question. Suggestions for items already in the catalog will be discarded.
