  2. Please note: This request does not guarantee the library will purchase the book. We will do our best to meet requests, but a number of factors help determine which books we purchase. We will try our best to expedite approved requests, but please note that the purchase process, even for ebooks, is not instantaneous. Depending on staff workloads, it may take a week or longer from the date of the request for ebooks to be added to our collection, and longer for physical materials.
