In most cases, we can request a book from another library and have it within a few days. Just ask at the circulation desk.


Request for Purchase

We love getting requests and recommendations! If we think a book, DVD, magazine, newspaper, game, or database should be in the ALPL collection, we’ll buy it and let you know when it is available for check-out. You can make requests by clicking here.
