Purchase Suggestions

Fill out our online Purchase Suggestion Form »

The Des Moines Public Library welcomes recommendations for purchase. At times our customers note items for purchase 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 Materials Suggestion Form. Residents of Des Moines and rural Polk County are given special consideration as we evaluate suggestions for purchase.

  • 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
