Coming Soon: Phase 2!
Phase 1 of the Zip Books grant project has ended. Phase 2 will start up in August! What is Zip Books? If the Library does not own a title you'd like to read/listen to, and if that title is available on Amazon.com, we will not only order it, but ship it to your address at no charge. Read it and return it to us and place your next Zip Books Request. Zip Books is a California State Library supported project. See the flyer for more details .
