A special way to get books that the library doesn't own, Zip Books are real books that can be sent to your home.
A Zip Book is shipped directly to your mailing address using Amazon Prime, and checked out to you. Zip Books, if securely packaged as noted below, can now be returned in the book drop.

Zip Books is a statewide project of the California State Library and NorthNet, funded by the California Library Services Act. This wonderful project improves flexibility and efficiency in our interlibrary loan system.
If you were wondering why brand new books, eBooks, and current NYT bestsellers can’t be Zip Books, it’s because this funding is given to us just to improve our ability to get you older books that aren’t in our local library system.
For new books, please let us know of your interest in the item by making a New Book Suggestion.
