If you can't find an item in the Library Catalog (V-Cat) and you think we should have it, let us know! You may use the online form below, or paper Purchase Suggestion forms are available at all MCPL locations. We can't promise that we will acquire the item, but we will investigate its suitability for our collections. We will place the item on hold and notify you if it is purchased. This process may take several weeks or longer. Alternatively, consider using Interlibrary Loan (WISCAT) to request older items with limited appeal.

Please note: (1) We are only able to purchase books up to six months prior to their release dates, and DVDs and CDs up to three months prior to their release dates. (2) E-books should be suggested using Wisconsin's Digital Library.
