Request an Item

Thanks for exploring the library’s collections.  If you aren’t finding what you are looking for, we are here to help.  Staff are available to help you find similar topics of interest within our collection through the Personalized Picks service or research assistance.

If you are looking for a specific title or article, please fill out the following form.

What you can expect from the request process:

  • Boise cardholders can request 1 item per week.
  • Please be as specific as possible about your request as staff will not be able to fill series or general author requests.
  • Staff will not be able to track multiple requests.
  • If you provide an email address, you will receive a response regarding your request within two weeks.
  • Due to the volume of requests and the privacy concerns associated with leaving a voicemail, staff will only make phone calls if there are questions about the request.
  • Due to the volume of requests, we will not be able to fill all requests.
  • Requests generally take between 2-6 weeks to arrive.
