Tahoe-Truckee Lib Loop: Libraries love your suggestions
We of the local libraries would love to hear from you about books, audiobooks, movies or magazines that you would like to borrow, but that we don’t have in our systems.
From our websites, we have purchase suggestion options: If you wish something and fill out the form and we’re able to get it, we’ll even put it on hold for you.
For the Washoe County Library system, go to the website’s home page (washoecounty.us/library), and under “Resources,” go to “Library Services” and you’ll see “Suggest a Purchase,” which takes you to the form.
For Placer County Libraries, visit placer.ca.gov/Departments/Library and click “Suggest Purchase for Library”
For the Truckee Library in the Nevada County Library System, visit mynevadacounty.com/nc/library/Pages/Home.aspx, then go to “Purchase Suggestion.”
