Community members are welcome to make recommendations of titles to add to the Watkins Glen Public Library’s collection. We try to honor requests to the best of our ability. Variables that affect an item’s purchase include availability, price, publication date, and amount of copies that already exist in the Southern Tier Library System. You can find the library’s Collections Development Policy here.

Note: Due to limited shelf space, the library typically does not purchase items published 4+ years ago. We will consider requests on a case-by-case basis. It can sometimes take 1-2 months before purchased items arrive and are cataloged.

How to Make a Request
