Request, Receive, Read, Return, Repeat
Zip Books is the fastest option when you request a book that is not owned by the El Centro Public Library. Zip Books requests can be placed for books, large print books, books on CD, and foreign language books. Zip Books are ordered exclusively from Amazon.com and shipped directly to your home at no charge to you. The funding for Zip Books comes from the California State Library. You may keep the Zip Books item for up to 3-4 weeks with no overdue fees involved. Once you read the book it should be returned to the circulation desk inside the library along with a completed survey. The survey provides the required grant feedback and identifies the book as a Zip Books item. All returned Zip Books are cataloged and added to the Library's collection for others to enjoy. Contact the library at 760-337- 4565 or stop by and ask us about Zip Books.
