FVRL welcomes suggestions for the collection. Log in to submit a suggestion. When we respond, you'll find it by clicking the "Suggested this month" button in your library account dashboard.

Please follow these guidelines for suggestions.

  • Suggest titles that are:
    • Not in our collection (search the catalogue first).
    • Available for purchase (we can’t buy titles that aren’t available to the general public)
    • Recently published and not “forthcoming” (we automatically add new titles by many popular authors! Please wait to see if it’s in the catalogue on its release date before you request it)
  • Suggest up to 3 titles each month.
  • Make only one suggestion per title.

We are unable to add every item that is suggested for purchase. Some reasons that we may not add an item to the collection:

  • FVRL prioritizes purchasing based on availability, currency and popularity.
  • FVRL aims to collect new, current titles of interest. Academic specialty titles or textbooks are not included.
  • FVRL must make purchases from select vendors who may not be able to source some titles. Specialized or independent publications are often unavailable.
  • Older or out of print publications that are not a fit for our popular lending collection may be available through Interlibrary Loan. Please contact an FVRL location near you for information about InterLibrary Loans.

Suggest titles by local authors using our Local Indie Author program.

Until we respond to your request, its status will show as "Under Review." If we respond to say we will purchase your suggested title, it will appear in the catalogue in a few weeks. If you'd like an email when the title is added, log in to the Classic Catalogue to create a My Search Alert.
