Zip Books

Can’t find a title in our catalog? Try our Zip Books program!

Zip Books is sponsored by the California State Library and administered by Califa. Through the program, you may request a title not currently in our collection and have it sent directly to your home by Amazon. When you have finished, simply drop off the book at the library.

In order to request a title, you must be a current library patron with no oustanding fines. If you don’t have a library card, you may request one with a valid photo ID and proof of address and you’ll be able to make a request that same day!

Only one Zip Book request may be active at a time; you must return your Zip Book item before you can request another. Requests are limited to books (regular print or large type) or audiobooks available for under $35. As fulfillment is handled by Amazon, please check their site beforehand to make sure the item is available.
