Online Zip Books Request will be processed Monday-Friday 10AM-2PM.
- During COVID-19 Stay in Place order, the Library will allow a Kings County Library customer to have 5 open Zip Book requests. Total of Zip Books requested are not to exceed a total cost of $100. Since library-owned physical materials are not currently accessible, we can order Zips even if we already own the book. These guidelines are in place until further notice. Service will return to one item at a time after Kings County Library locations reopen.
Please do not return Zip Books until the Library is reopened. Once libraries have reopened, please bring Zip Books inside to the circulation desk and let the staff member know it was a Zip Book. Zip Books do not have specific due dates, but when the program is back to running according to its regular guidelines, you will not be able to request a new Zip Book until all your previous requests have been returned to the Library.
No pre-publication items are eligible for request.
If your Zip Book is approved, the order will be placed with Amazon and the item will be shipped to your house. Please note that Amazon is currently experiencing shipping delays. Once the book arrives at your home, you will have it for a three-week checkout.
