Request an Item Not Held

Is our collection missing something? Let us know!


We will be glad to either:

  • Consider purchasing your suggestion, provided it meets Library guidelines.
  • Request the item via interlibrary loan from applicable Library Services.

Before placing a request, please Search our catalogue to make sure we don't already have the item you are looking for.

If you can't find the item you are looking for in our catalogue, and it is a new publication, we may purchase it for the collection and it will be reserved for you. This is a free service. 
Please note that Bayside will already be purchasing popular movies and TV shows to add to our collection. You do not need to submit a request for these titles. Please remember that a film's theatrical release date is different to the DVD release date. Content from specific publishers like Netflix, Stan and Amazon Prime are not always released on DVD.

If the item was published more than two years ago, or falls outside our Collection Guidelines, we can borrow it for you from another library service for a fee. 

  • Items borrowed from another Victorian Public Library - $3.00
  • Items borrowed from a University, Corporate or State Library - $28.50. Library staff will confirm with you before proceeding with an inter library loan.
