Can I recommend a specific purchase to the Library, such as a book, movie, or music title?
You may submit your recommendations by phoning our Call Center at 602-262-4636 or in person at any Phoenix Public Library location. You may also submit your recommendation online by completing the Suggest a Purchase form. Please be aware that you will be prompted to log in with your library card to submit a suggestion. Each cardholder may suggest up to 10 titles per month. For efficiency, please include only 1 title per form. Suggestions that do not include a valid email address for notification will not be considered.

Photographing at the Library
Our library facilities are open to the public. In general, visitors such as media, customers, staff, filmmakers etc. are allowed to enter library facilities and photograph or videotape customers, staff and activities. We do have parameters for these activities that we ask that you comply with:
1. At any of our locations, when you arrive, please check in with staff and let them know what you are doing.
2. Our customers and visitors can expect that they will not be photographed or filmed in such a way that the title of materials or websites they are using is visible (pursuant to Arizona Revised Statute 41 - 151.22).
3. Please be sure to respectfully make an announcement prior to filming/photography to allow any customers to choose to move out of the area.
4. If you are wanting to include any children in your shoot, please obtain parental permission to photograph or film minors and please make every attempt to use wide angles (i.e. from as far away as possible so as not to focus on individual faces as much as possible).
