Purchase Suggestion

We welcome your suggestions!

  • Please check our catalog to make sure we don't already own the title.
  • Give as much information as possible.
  • If the title has not been published yet, please wait until 3 months before publishing date to send.
  • We cannot buy everything, but your suggestion will be given our attention.
  • We do not, as a rule, purchase textbooks or academic materials as it is outside the scope of our library collection.
  • We receive many suggestions and, in general, are unable to reply to most.
  • We cannot place holds for you.
  • Suggestions are for Alameda County LIbrary card holders.
