Purchase Suggestions & Interlibrary Loans

Bookmobile out of service

The Bookmobile will be out of service through April 1. Regular runs will resume April 2.

Didn't find the item you were looking for in our catalog? We now have a couple of ways to suggest an item - through our online form or through the catalog.

If we cannot purchase the item we will attempt to obtain it through another library system (Interlibrary Loan).

For Books, DVDs and CDs

Option 1 - Online Form

Option 2 - Catalog


     1. From the catalog search choose the “Requests and magazine articles” link.
     2. Uncheck Kitsap Library and check Interlibrary loan/Suggest Purchase.
     3. Click Set Databases button.
     4. Perform search. Be sure to "Add Pending Results."
     5. When you find the item you want, place a hold.
     6. Suggestion shows up instantly in your account if you submit your request using the catalog.
