Please DO NOT request the following items:

  • eBooks and eAudiobooks. For eBook/eAudiobook purchase suggestions, follow these instructions., opens a new window 
  • Brand new/unpublished titles or bestsellers. We likely already have these on order.
  • Items over 3 years old.
  • Items that have not yet been released in Canada.

Please note that while we'd love to purchase every requested title, we are simply not able to accommodate every single request. If we are not able to bring in your suggested title, we will contact you with other options (if you wish you be contacted).

This service is for RDPL cardholders only. TAL and ME Card customers must make suggestions for purchase to their home library.
