Policy on Suggestions for the Collection
The Memphis Public Library & Information Center strives to acquire, organize, make accessible, and actively promote materials and electronic resources which support the informational, educational, cultural, and recreational needs of the community.
Our collection development policy takes into consideration factors such as public demand, current or historical interest, and reading and interest levels. We are committed to providing materials and access to Web and other electronic resources for a very large and diverse public with a wide range of viewpoints.
We are always interested in improving our collections. If you would like to request that the Library purchase or provide access to a particular item or resource, please submit this form:
If the material is purchased or if access is provided, you will be notified as soon as the item is received or the access is made available. Include your contact information in the request if you wish to be notified.

You will be notified as soon as a decision is made. Include your contact information in the request if you wish to be notified.
