Most public libraries have a system for current patrons to submit a suggestion either on line or in person at a branch. Here are the book details you may need to have:
Title: The Buddha's Teachings on Social and Communal Harmony: An Anthology of Discourses from the Pali Canon
Author: Bhikkhu Bodhi
In the comments field in my library's form I wrote:
Many libraries restrict purchases to newly published books, so now is a good time to suggest it. They will often refer to amazon.com reviews, so if you have read the books, you could post a review on amazon to help out.This is the latest anthology of Buddhist scriptures from the esteemed author and translator monk Bhikkhu Bodhi. It follows his highly praised anthology *In the Buddha's Words*, which you already have in the collection. It was just published in December and already has several five star reviews on amazon.com. The material in this anthology is relevant to people of all backgrounds and provides an excellent doorway to the modern application of ancient Buddhist scriptures. With a foreword by the Dali Lama and individual chapter introductions it will have an appeal to many readers.
Please post in this thread when you make a request and share any tips you discover. Also let us know when the book comes in to your branch.
