Do you desire a certain book? You want to suggest to us an important film, an interesting music CD or something else? Then, send us your suggestions!

Please take into account before you write to us that we can't currently consider the following items:

  • Bestsellers
  • Items which are mentioned in the media (radio, TV…)
  • Presale items
  • Items which are older than 3 years

We have a set budget for purchasing items, therefore we  have to pick the most interesting suggestions which will also fit in with our current collection.
Please log into your library account. You will find your user account nr. on the back of your library card. The password is your birthday (DDMMYY).
How to make a purchase suggestion:

You can follow the progress of your acquistition wish in your account.
