What if there is an eBook that I want to read, but it's not on OverDrive?

There are two ways you can make purchase suggestions for OverDrive:

1) Patrons can make purchase suggestion through OverDrive on their app or computer here. Once logged in, search for the book that you want to suggest. On the results page, select "Recommend to library" under the "Availability" filter. There should be a "Not Owned" banner at the top of some of the results. Click or tap "Recommend" to recommend the title. If the Library buys the title, you will be added to the wait list and receive an email when your hold is available.

2) Patrons can make book requests from their library account. Select here, follow the login directions, and you will be taken to your personal library account where you can make purchase suggestions. Select "New purchase suggestion" to begin and fill out the required information.

Under "Item type," you must select "EBook" in order for your Library to know you would like the eBook version of the book you are requesting. If you specifically want the book on OverDrive and not the Library's other eBook providers, please specify in the "Notes" portion of the purchase suggestion form
