Suggest a Title

NVDPL regularly purchases bestselling authors and popular media, and we’re proud to offer a diverse collection of material to our community! If you are looking for a published title that we don’t currently have on our shelves, we welcome your suggestions to add to our collection.

How does it work?

  • We welcome suggestions for titles not currently in our collection, available for purchase, and already released.
  • We consider suggestions for material published within 2 years and of general interest to our community.
  • Library staff select and purchase bestselling authors and popular titles– please check our catalogue regularly and place holds.
  • Please note that content produced by streaming services are often not available for purchase on DVD or Blu-ray.
  • If you're looking for out of print items or older titles, please use our Interlibrary Loans service. ​
  • For ebooks and e-audiobooks, use the "Notify Me" feature in Libby. Learn more here.
  • If you’re a North Shore author/creator, learn more about the North Shore Authors Collection.
