Zip Books, E-Books, the October Book Giveaway, and more at your library!

First, Plumas County Library is incredibly excited to announce the Zip Book program, which has returned on October 1st! Zip Books is a way for you to request books that our library does not have. Eligible books will be purchased and shipped right to your door – at no cost to you! When you’re done with the book, simply return it to the store where you requested it. Visit for more information or to print the form. (Available at all Plumas and Sierra Library branches and stations.) Just a reminder, if you didn’t return your Zip book from earlier this year, you must do so before you can order a new one.

Second, we are expanding our e-book/e-audio book collection! In addition to providing access to our NorthNet Library System collection, we have entered into an agreement with two neighboring consortia, MARINet and Peninsula Library System, so our users can now also access their articles. (By agreement, only immediately available items are visible to you and you cannot reserve their items.) We now have over 152,000 unique titles available between the three library systems. For more information about Libby (the app used to access our Overdrive Collection), how-to guides providing step-by-step instructions on how to use the app, and details of this Agreement, please visit our website at / 2842. You can also use Libby to access e-magazines and movies.

Thirdly, we wanted to let customers know that you can now also access part of our Overdrive collection with the Palace Project app, another app for accessing an ebook/eaudiobook collection.

Fourth, you may have already seen the announcement, but October is one of our book giveaway months! Plumas County Library is giving away free books throughout October. Every day the library is open, children 18 and under can complete an activity, turn it in, and receive a free book. (One free book per person per day.) Activity sheets are available from any branch during opening hours or you can print them yourself from our website Stop by your branch and see the variety of books available. This program runs several times a year and is a great way to encourage reading development.
