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.
