Purchase Request Form

Please Search the Catalog first!

Before you send in your purchase request, please note:

Would you like the library to consider purchasing an item? Please fill out the form below in as much detail as possible and press the “submit” button to send your suggestion to the Library.

Our ebooks are purchased through the MoLib2Go consortium and suggestions for those must be made directly to them at https://molib2go.overdrive.com/. Search for the desired title and, if it is not found, click the link to add titles the library doesn’t own. You can also check Hoopla, but they do not accept suggestions for purchase.

If this title is ordered, it will be placed on hold for you. If you do not want the item held, please note that and the reason why in the “other information” section of the form. If the decision is made not to purchase the item, a note will be put into your patron record detailing the reasons. If you’d prefer an email, please enter that below.

We cannot order items more than 3 months prior to publication, so please wait to enter suggestions for purchase until items reach that threshold.

Please limit yourself to 5 suggestions per month. That’s a total of 60 per year.

We will only accept suggestions for purchase from persons with a valid Joplin Public Library card.
