Suggestion For Purchase


Is there a title that you think Red Deer Public Library users will enjoy and is not in the library catalogue? If so, tell us about it. Fill in the following form and we will consider your suggestion.

The Library does not purchase all recommended titles. Each request is assessed based on the library's Collection Development Policy and available funding. Usually titles older than three years are not purchased. Older, specialized, academic, or out-of-print items may be requested through Interlibrary Loan. We will place a hold on your behalf if we order the item or contact you if we decide not to purchase the item.

You may submit up to 10 purchase suggestions per month. Please submit a title only once.

Please do not suggest:

  • Very popular and best selling authors, top 40 compact discs, or well reviewed DVD feature films. We will very likely be buying these anyway.

  • Anything over 3 years old.

  • Items that are not yet published or released in Canada.
