Suggest a Purchase
The Lodi Public Library encourages patrons to suggest a purchase for the library collection. Simply provide the Reference Librarians with the title and author of the book you would like to see in the library collection. You may give the Reference Librarians your library card to contact you if the book is added to the collection. After reviewing the title’s reviews and availability, the Reference Librarian in charge of the particular collection (Adult, Teen, Children) will make the decision about adding it to the library’s collection.
