Suggest Material for Our Collection

The Marion Public Library welcomes purchase suggestions from library users. While we may not be able to acquire everything that is suggested, your suggestion will receive serious consideration. 
If an item you are seeking is not available at any library in the Metro Network (Cedar Rapids, Hiawatha or Marion), we can often get it from another library through Interlibrary Loan.  You'll want to sign into your account using the "Log In" button, and then click on the ILL Request/Purchase Request section in the toolbar. You can then select "Recommend to Order" by "Request Type". To submit your request, click on this link


Tips for Suggesting Items

  1. Check the Library Catalog to see if we own the item before submitting your request.
  2. For older books (published more than one year ago), specialized technical books, or out-of-print materials, you may wish to consider Interlibrary Loan as well.
