   Lost Library Book Hardship Letter

Dear {Librarian},

It is with regret that I must confirm that the library's copy of {book title} that I borrowed has been {lost/destroyed}. Despite my best intentions, {peril}.

When I inquired about replacing the book at my expense, I was told that I would owe {amount} due to the edition required as well as staff time needed to prepare the book for lending. I would very much like to procure the book myself to offset some of this expense. Money is very tight for me right now due to {reason}.

I've been able to find a copy for sale at {source} for {amount}. Here is a link to the information: {URL}. Please let me know if this version would be suitable for your collection.

Thank you very much for your consideration.
