Suggest an Item for Purchase
We want to build a diverse, robust and balanced collection to serve all of Edmonton. If you’re interested in a title that’s not in the Edmonton Public Library catalogue, you can suggest a purchase and we’ll consider your request.
Please note: Only EPL customers can make suggestions for the purchase of new library materials.

Suggest a Title for EPL's Collection
You can request up to five items per month through our online catalogue. Suggestions are evaluated according to our Collection Development Policy - PDF.
  1. Before making your suggestion, check our catalogue to make sure we don't already carry the item.
  2. Log into your library account (a valid library card and PIN are required).
  3. Go to My Library Dashboard and click Submit a Suggestion to make a new suggestion (a valid library card and PIN are required).
  4. Track the progress of your suggestion within your account in the Suggested Purchases page (note: you must be logged in to view this page).
Suggest a Title for OverDrive
You can also suggest one eBook or digital audiobook title in OverDrive every 2 weeks.
  1. Search for the item you’re interested in borrowing by clicking on the magnifying glass in the top right corner of the browser.
  2. The top of the search results page will display titles that EPL owns that match (or are similar to) your search. The bottom of the page shows unowned titles that are also available through OverDrive.
