Patron Request for the Purchase of Library Materials
To control for the high demand of the Patron Request Program the following changes are effective immediately:
Patrons must have a card in good standing. The card cannot be expired or have fines over $5.00.
We will not accept requests for any materials that are not yet published. Due to the high volume of patron requests we must consider only those items which are readily available.
Popular authors, titles, and movies (a.k.a. Bestsellers) will be regularly ordered and patrons interested in these materials should monitor the Library’s catalog and place a hold when the item appears in the catalog.
The Library will only purchase items that are available from the Library’s regular vendors. Used materials are never considered for purchase.
Academic work and professional materials have limited appeal to the general public. Per our Collection Development Policy, since we wish to avoid “… duplicating the role of the academic and the school libraries, area library resources are considered in selecting materials.” For this reason, we cannot include textbooks, workbooks, study materials for classroom settings, or academic work. We must consider public demand in the library’s service area.
