Titles that are not found in our
online catalog and have been published within the last 12 months may be suggested for purchase. To borrow items older than a year please use our
Interlibrary Loan service or contact your local library to request the title.
Complete the form to suggest an item for purchase. Library selectors will decide within 21 days if an item will be ordered. If a title is not purchased for the collection or is canceled by our vendors, we can notify you if an email address is provided.
If the item is purchased, it may be 4-6 weeks or longer before it physically arrives at your library and an automated call or email will let you know when it is ready for you to pick up. Holds will be placed on all items purchased with the exception of e-books and e-audio.
Purchasing guidelines for authors and publishers
The Dakota County Library is happy to consider recently published books and other items for our collection. Books added to the library must meet our selection criteria and fit into our
collection development plan.
