How do I suggest a title for EPL’s collection?

We want to build a balanced collection to serve all of Edmonton. If you’re interested in a title that’s not in the EPL catalogue, let us know and we’ll consider your request.

Just make sure it was originally published or produced in the last 10 years. Suggestions are evaluated according to our Collection Development Policy.

You can request up to five items per month through the online catalogue. Track the progress of your suggestion within the Suggest a Purchase pages (after logging in). Before making your suggestion, check our catalogue to make sure we don't already carry it.

Suggest a new item (library card and PIN required)

You can also make 3 eBook and eAudiobook suggestions through our eBook service OverDrive every 30 days. When making suggestions in OverDrive, ask to be added to the holds list to track the item's progress.

(Suggestions for the purchase of new library materials are available only to City of Edmonton Residents)
