Thank you for your interest in Samuels Public Library. In purchasing materials for the library, our professional staff carefully reads book reviews to ensure that each title meets the guidelines of the Samuels Public Library collection policy.
If you wish your request to be considered for the library collection, please fill out the following form completely. Any reviews you have read about the book should be cited (publication and date).
Although we welcome recommendations, funding deficits have reduced our book budgets and do not permit us to purchase every suggested title.
