The goal of the Zip Books Project is to expand the use of an alternative model for interlibrary loan service that, over time, has proved cost effective, easy to use, and extremely popular with the public. The project started in 2013 with 15 libraries; currently over 68 library jurisdictions across the state are participating, with more being added all the time.

Zip Books is a partnership between the California State Library and the NorthNet Library System. It is supported with California Library Services Act funds.
