Zip Book Request Form
How to use it:
Step 1: Fill out the Zip Request Form.
Step 2: Library staff will email or call to let you know what day to expect the book to arrive from Amazon or let you know if it is not available.
Step 3: Keep the item as long as you want. When you are finished, return item to a staff member at any Sacramento Public Library during library open hours. Please inform staff that you are returning a Zip Book. The item must be returned in order to request an additional item. If the item is returned through the book drop, it will not be taken off your account.
Step 4: You will be asked to complete a short survey which allows us to track patron satisfactory level with the program.
