Purchase Suggestions

Fill out our online Purchase Suggestion Form »

The Des Moines Public Library welcomes recommendations for purchase. At times our customers note items that we have overlooked, or they become aware of new items before our library staff. Please fill out our online purchase suggestion form, or stop in to any one of our six library locations to fill out a Suggestions Form. If your suggestion is chosen for purchase, your name will be placed on hold for the item, and you will receive a notification for your chosen location as soon as it is available.

  • Limit of three suggestions per calendar month
  • Do not request items more than eight months ahead of release date
  • Items more than two years old should be requested via Interlibrary Loan
