Zip Book Request Form
Can't find a book (print or audio) in our catalog? If your library account is in good standing, fill out the request form for the item you wish to see. The item will be shipped directly to you, and then you can return it to the branch you ordered it from after you've finished reading it so we can add it to our catalog for other patrons to borrow.
Please read the rules for the program before ordering your Zip Book (as we restart the program in Oct 2018, changes have been made to better fit the grant requirements):
* A new zip book cannot be ordered until your old zip book is returned to the branch you ordered it from
* You may only order 4 zip books per month
* Item must be under $35 on Amazon Prime
* Audiobooks and fictions books must be at least a year old; nonfiction can't be older than a 2000 copyright. (Please fill out the book request slip at the front desk if the fiction book is within a year old and not in our catalog so the item can be considered for the collection.)
* Item must be returned in good condition, and new editions returned with heavy damage will be charged damage fees and/or for a book replacement
* Items are expected to be returned to the branch you ordered it from within three months of receiving the item. Please include the Amazon packing slip or add a note stating that it is a Zip book if placed in the book drop
