How to get on the library waiting list

Inquiring minds


Each week the staff at the Roseville Library answers more than 2,500 questions on every subject under the sun. Here is one of the most interesting ones they’ve gotten lately.


Q. How do I get on a waiting list for a newly released item at the library?

 A. If you see the new release in our online catalog, Aquabrowser, you can click on the “Request” button to request a copy. If you don’t see the new release on the catalog, that means that we likely have not yet ordered it. In that case, go to the library website at; then mouse over the Books, Movies, or Music tab, depending on what format you wish. Click on the “Suggest a Title” option from the drop down menu, and fill out the form that appears. 

You can also let us know via the “Ask a Librarian” email option on the website that you would like to request a new release. The library is not able to purchase all suggested titles, but we make every effort to satisfy as many requests as possible. But don’t try to order too far in advance. We are not able to begin the request process until six months or less before the item is released.
