Make a suggestion

Read a good book and think the library should have a copy? Sorry we are unable to accept your suggestions while we are installing a new library catalogue. Once we have made the changeover we will consider your suggestions again. Newly published titles are not appearing on our catalogue during the transition period. You will soon be able to order them on our new catalogue!

We review your suggestions regularly, keep an eye on the library catalogue to see any new additions.
