Suggest a Purchase

Oshawa Public Libraries welcomes suggestions for titles to be added to our collection. Library staff will evaluate suggestions according to the Library’s Collection Development Policy.

Please note the following guidelines when making a suggestion:

  • Titles should not already be available at OPL. Please check the Library catalogue before submitting your suggestion.
  • Please avoid suggesting any title not yet published (including popular books or movies) as it is likely most of these titles will be ordered.
  • Older and out-of-print titles are not considered. Please request these titles through an interlibrary loan.
  • Please note: due to the nature of video game distribution and release, we cannot accept suggestions to purchase these items.

For Self-Published Authors

If you wish to submit your self-published title for consideration for inclusion in the collection, please read our guidelines and criteria.
