Request for Purchase

The library welcomes suggestions for new items to add to the collection. You can search the catalog to see if your suggestion is something we already own. If not, fill out the Request for Purchase form below to make your suggestion. 

You must be a Boyd County Public Library card holder to place a request.  Due to budget and space limitations, the library is not able to purchase all suggested materials and any item added must meet the library’s guidelines.  See Collection Management Plan for further details.

We typically purchase titles no more than three months in advance of publication.  If you’re looking for popular upcoming titles, especially from bestselling authors, don’t worry, we have our eyes on them too. There’s no need to suggest them.  

Note that many older titles are no longer available for purchase. For these items, you may want to consider an Interlibrary Loan. Submit an Interlibrary Loan Request.

Holds cannot be placed on digital materials.

If you are an author or publisher, please read our Guidelines for Local and Self-Published Authors.
