Suggestion for Purchase


Updated October 2019

Please check the library catalog to verify that Brown County Library does not already own or has already ordered the item you are suggesting.
Use this form to request materials you would like to see purchased for the library’s collection. Due to the high volume of suggestions we receive, we are not able to purchase every title or respond individually to each request.
If items requested are purchased, a hold will be placed for you, and you will be notified when the item is ready for checkout. This process could take several weeks.
NOTE: Should the library decide not to purchase the suggested item or if the requested materials are out of print or unavailable to the library, an interlibrary loan could be considered. Due to national interlibrary loan protocols, we cannot obtain items from other libraries that are less than 6 months old (as listed on
