Suggest A Title

Suggest a book that we don’t have and we’ll consider adding it to our shelves.

Suggest a Title
If you don’t see an item listed in our catalog, suggest it. Suggest new books, movies or video games and we’ll consider it for our collection. All you have to do is sign in with your library card and fill out a simple form. You can suggest as many as three titles at a time, up to 30 per year. All suggestions will be considered in accordance with our Collection Development Policy.  

Request to have a book shipped directly to you house. You'll hear back from us within two weeks (depending on shipping options and availability). If your title is approved, it will be delivered straight to your door. When you’re done reading it, return it to any of our library locations.

NOTICE: The Zip Book program has been temporarily paused until further notice at the request of our grant administrators. We hope to resume the program later this year. 

Have Questions?
Can I suggest anything?

You can suggest anything, but we ask that you reserve this for titles that aren’t expected to be on our shelves. For example, don’t recommend books that are landing on bestseller lists and trending in our communities. We already have those ordered.

What if the book I want to suggest isn’t published yet?

Give it some time. We can only order books that will be published within the next two months.

Can anyone use Zip Books?

The Zip Books program can be used by anyone in the Sacramento Public Library service area with a card in good standing.
