Zip Books is a statewide project of the NorthNet Library System, funded by the California State Library. Books that are not currently owned by either of our branches are available for order through Amazon. Once ordered, books are mailed directly to you, the patron. You then have up to 2 months to enjoy your book before returning it to the library. Once returned, you can order another one, and so on!
Library patrons may order up to two items a month, with a cap of $50 per print book, and $75 per audio or Playaway book.
We are unable to honor requests for pre-orders - the book must be currently available. To request your next great read, please fill out this Zipbooks Request Form and submit to Library. Or if you prefer, you can print this form and return to Library staff in person.
Feel free to call on us if you have questions about the form or about a particular title.
We hope you enjoy this amazing program!
