Looking for something we don’t have?
You have a few choices:
- Use our new Zip Books program to have the item delivered to you (only for books, large print books and books on CD).
- Place a request through Link Plus, which lets you borrow from dozens of libraries in California and Nevada (free)
- Place an inter-library loan request to get the book from a library somewhere else ($5.00)
- Suggest a title for us to purchase; we take every request seriously, but do say no from time to time (free)
