Unavailable materials may be requested through the online catalogue if you have your library card’s barcode number. Otherwise, ask a librarian or fill out one of the green request slips at the circulation desk.
If we don’t own the book you need, we’ll try to borrow it from another library. Interlibrary loan service is available to residents of Webster Groves only, or to paid non-resident subscribers. Requests can be made at the Library, by phone, or through our contact page.
Suggestions for Purchase
If you’ve heard of a recent book you believe would make a good addition to the Library’s collection, you can suggest it at the Library, by phone, or through our contact page. We can’t purchase everything people suggest, but if it’s a book of general interest that’s being talked about on TV, radio or in newspapers, we’ll consider it.
