Suggest a Title Form
We've made changes to how we process suggest a title requests, please see the FAQs below for the most commonly asked questions. To make a title suggestion, please sign into our catalog at Catalog.SLOLibrary.org to fill out the form.
Requests for items published within the past six months, including requests for items that have not yet been published, will not be considered and the request will be denied. Popular titles, best sellers will be purchased, so no need to request those titles.
My suggestion said that it did not meet the library’s Collection Development guidelines. What does that mean?
The Zip Books service was a grant funded program through the California State Library, the money has been spent and the service is no longer available.
You will receive email notifications on the status of your request.
Our vendors process all our items for us, so as soon as they arrive at the library they’re already cataloged, covered, stickered, and ready to fill your hold!
We receive hundreds of suggestions each month! While we wish we were able to add every title, we’re not able to do so. The most common reason we don’t add a title to the collection is simply that it is unavailable for us to purchase through our vendors (please note, Amazon is not one of our vendors). This is particularly common for older titles (which may be out of print), or titles from small presses.
