UPDATE FALL 2023: ZIP BOOKS ARE BACK! See the details below to learn how to use the program
Thanks to the California State Library, we able to continue requesting books through the Zipbook program. The Zipbook program is grant funded purchasing through Amazon.com
Registered patrons in good standing may request tangible books or audiobooks (no e-books). Requested items will be shipped directly to you from Amazon.com. When you are done with the book, please return it to your local branch through the book drop!
There is a two-tier expenditure cap of $75 pre-tax for audiobooks and foreign-language books, and $50 pre-tax for all other books. You may order 1 item at any one time with a limit of 1 order per month. DVDs, Music CDs, e-Books, e-Audiobooks and other non-book materials are not eligible for this program.
When submitting a request, you must include a valid Amazon mailing address:
- If you have home USPS delivery: land address
- If you do NOT have USPS delivery: land address AND PO Box
- Phone number
- Amazon link to the book
- Title & Author
- Your name
- Your email
- Your telephone
- Your library card #
- Your full address (please include BOTH the land address and PO Box if you do not have USPS delivery)
You must return the book to your nearest Mono County Library when you are finished reading it. Lost or damaged Zip Books will incur a replacement fee similar to other library books.
