If you can't find a title in the Siskiyou County Library catalog, please consider using our Zip Books program to get the book.

Zip Books is a program sponsored by the California State Library and administered by Califa and it allows you to request a title not in our collection and have it sent directly to your home by mail through Amazon. When you have finished, just drop off the book at your local branch for further processing.

You must be a currently library patron to request a title and can only request one Zip Book item at a time. You must return your Zip Book item before you can request another. The request must be for a book (regular print or large type), or audio book that is available for $35 or less.

We are using site to purchase requests so please check their site beforehand to make sure the item is available.  We will only contact you only if we are unable to fulfill the request or does not meet the criteria.

If you don't have a library card, visit your local branch with a photo ID and a piece of mail\proof of address and you'll be able to make a request that same day!

To make a request, fill in the form below.

If you'd like to request a book from 2017 or 2018, please use our Purchase Suggestions form.

Call us at (530) 842-8807 or e-mail with any questions.

If you don't receive your Zip Book order within two weeks, please contact us at the e-mail or phone number above.


As of April 15th, we have been allocated additional funds from the Library Development Services Bureau of the State Library of California and have an approximate total of $4500 through October.

Please join us in thanking the State Library for their generous support of the Zip Books program and the Siskiyou County Library system!
