The Mono County Library is now offering Zip Books, a project funded by the California State Library through a grant from Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA).
Using a "buy vs. borrow" model, Zip Books is a fast, cost-effective method to secure the books you want to read. If the book or audiobook that you want isn't currently part of the library's collection, we will order it from Amazon and send it directly to your home, free of charge. You may have one Zip Book at a time. When you've finished with the item, return it to your library branch and request another! We ask only that you return the Zip Book directly to library staff member and that you fill out a short survey upon returning that item. We will then either add your Zip Book to the collection, or offer it to the Friends of the Library.
Zip Book item value is limited to $35. To participate, you must be a Mono County Library cardholder in good standing.
The Zip Books project is scheduled to last through June 2015, so try it out before it goes away! For more information on the Zip Books program stop by your favorite branch.
