Didn't find the item you were looking for in our catalog? Use our Purchase Request & Interlibrary Loan form to request a specific item that the Library does not own.  If we don't purchase the item, we try to find it from another library system through Interlibrary Loan.

Please Note:

  • You must have an active Kitsap Regional Library card to submit a request.  Sign up for a library card.
  • Limit your suggestions to three items per week.  Only one item can be included in the request form.
  • Requests can take up to several weeks to be fulfilled.  If we are able to obtain the item, you will see it has an active hold in your Polaris account.  If you provide an email address during the request process, you will be updated about requests we are unable to fulfill.
