This form is used to suggest a title for purchase which the Somerset County Library System does not own. Please note that you will not receive an immediate response to these requests. You will be notified when the item that you requested is available for you to pick up.
Some items may arrive quickly; other items may be on backorder for an unspecified length of time. The Library cannot guarantee that any requested item will arrive within 2 weeks. 1. Check our online catalog, to verify that the Library does not own the desired item. If an item is owned, please place a hold instead of using this form. 2. If the item is not in the catalog, please fill out the following form as completely as possible. Please note that all purchase suggestions are evaluated in accordance with the Library's Materials Selection Policy. Some items cannot be purchased, because they are no longer in print. If we do not purchase the item you are requesting, and the item is over 6 months old, we will attempt to borrow the item for you from another library on Interlibrary Loan. Interlibrary Loan requests typically take at least two to four weeks. Availability depends on the requested item and the lending policies of participating libraries. Click here to submit a form.
