Suggestions For Purchase

Suggestions for Purchase can be made by patrons who are requesting that materials be purchased for the library. Patron suggestions must be made through personal accounts. Regardless of the decision to purchase or not, an email notification will be sent to the patron, notifying them of the decision. 

You can only place an item on hold once it has been purchased. If you receive a notification that the library has decided to purchase the material, log into your account and place a hold.

All suggestions are sent to the librarian in charge of that specific collection, and are carefully evaluated based on a number of criteria. 

 There are two ways to make a Suggestion for Purchase:

(1) Logging onto your library account and submitting your request online.

(2) You may call library at (408) 354-6890 or email us at
