How many titles per month can I suggest that the Library buy through Libby?


There is no limit to how many titles per month you can suggest through Libby. While the Metropolitan Library does not have an unlimited collections budget, we are always happy to consider purchasing items suggested by library users.

When searching Libby, you can find titles the Metro Library doesn't offer and use a "Notify Me" smart tag to suggest it to the Library. When you tag a title with your "Notify Me" smart tag, your interest in the title is anonymously shared with all of your saved libraries. If a title you've tagged with your "Notify Me" smart tag is purchased, you'll get a notification and have the option to borrow it or place it on hold right away.

The title recommendation/suggest a title feature is no longer available on the OverDrive website, but you can still recommend eBooks and eAudiobooks using the Libby app, or the Libby website.
