Sub: Request Letter for Library Books


With full regret, I have to say that our school library is in a devastated condition. We need to buy more books for the school library. We need to have a section of books related to literature and cultural art to enhance students knowledge. The numbers of students have been increased because of the new semester which results in increasing the demand for books.

Also, there is no existing section for literature and geography. For that matter, I request you to provide the library with fund so that the more books can be bought and the library would stand up to its meaning. Thank you for your consideration.

Yours obediently,

Respected sir,

With due respected, it is stated that the current book collection in the school library is very outdated. The syllabus is changing as directed by the board of education, which yields the need for new books in the library. Management has allotted a fair amount of funds for the purpose.

It is, therefore, requested that new books according to the syllabus be purchased for the school library. It will help both students as well as teachers.

Thank you in advance for taking time and consideration of this request.

Yours sincerely,

Syllabus in charge.
