ZIP Books are back!
For several years the ZIP Books Project has been instrumental in helping fill material needs here in Mendocino County and we are thrilled to be selected to continue with this unique project.
Developed by the California State Library in partnership with the NorthNet Library system, and supported with California Library Services Act funds, the ZIP Books Project was designed to expand the use of an alternative model for interlibrary loan services, reducing the need for libraries to search outside their home systems to obtain materials requested by patrons.
As our Ukiah based ZIP Books coordinator, Amee, put it “Our patrons have made great use of the Zip Books program, especially this past few months, so this funding is wonderful recognition of how much the program is being utilized here in Mendocino County.“
Thanks to all who participate in the ZIP Books Program. Your participation is what makes it such a great success. Keep up the great work!
