Material Requests

Can’t find what you’re looking for? We can help!

If an item is not available from the DGPL or any of the associated SWAN member libraries, we can request the title from another library on loan or we can look into purchasing the item for our library.

If the item is not available through any Illinois library, we can request it from a library outside of Illinois for a $5 charge. Any items considered for purchase must meet the library’s selection criteria as outlined in the library policies. Requests can be made only by DGPL cardholders. A maximum of three purchase suggestions may be made per month.

To request an item, please fill out this form. Please note that items purchased may take at least two weeks to process.
