Zip Books service is restarting this month at Salinas Public Library. This service, which is funded by the State of California and administered by the California State Library, provides an opportunity for library patrons to request and receive books that the library doesn't have in our collection. Library cardholders can receive their requested book delivered directly at their home, and they can return it to the library after they finish reading the book.

Almost 240 cardholders use Zip Books in the past year, with almost 50% of the eligible requested books were added to the library collection. Salinas Public Library is excited to be able to offer this service for another year to our community. Library cardholders are allowed up to two simultaneous borrowing of Zip Books, there are no fees to request, and books can be borrowed for up to 90 days! Want to know more about Zip Books?
