A Project of the Friends of the Orland Free Library

You still have a chance to display your name or message permanently in a lovely display at the Orland Free Library.  There are still 44 leaves left to purchase. The first 24 leaves are now being engraved and will be mounted when completed. The Friends thank Mr. Halsey who mounted the leaves on the Donor Tree. The tree was designed by Vic Russell (Corvallis, OR) and carved by John Zuppan.

Purchase a leaf from the donor tree and your name, love one’s name, or even a short message will be engraved on leaf as part of the Donor Recognition Tree.

This tree will have beautiful leaves in copper, silver and gold and will be placed near the entrance to the library for the community to enjoy. Each leaf will designate those who have so generously gifted to the campaign. The leaves also make wonderful memorials to loved ones.

zip books
The Orland Free Library has been selected by the California State Library to participate in a project called “Zip Books”. This project explores an alternative to traditional InterLibrary Loan (ILL). Using a “buy vs. borrow” procurement model, the Zip Books project is funded through a Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grant to the California State Library.

How does Zip Books work?

If you request a book or audiobook that the Orland Library does not own, the Library will try to purchase the item and have it shipped directly to you rather than borrow the item from another library. When you are finished with your item, you simply return it to the library.

What is eligible for Zip Books?

Books (regular or large print) or audiobooks that cost up to $35 that the Orland Library does not own are eligible for Zip Books. Videos or DVDs are NOT eligible.

Who can use Zip Books?

Registered borrowers in good standing are eligible.

How do I use Zip Books?

Ask for a Zip Books request form. Library staff will help you complete the form. You will be given a simple Zip Books survey form, along with a bookmark. Library staff will try to purchase the requested item through Amazon and have the item shipped directly to you using Amazon Prime free 2-day shipping. Library staff will notify you if we are unable to fill your request through Zip Books.

When you are finished with your item, simply return it to the library, along with the completed survey and bookmark. This provides required grant feedback and identifies the item as a Zip Book. Although you will not be given a due date for the item, we ask that you follow the regular library checkout period and return it 3 weeks from receiving.

May I request more than one item through Zip Books?

You may request another item when you return the one that was shipped to you.

What happens to the book/audiobook after it is returned?

The Librarian will review the item and decide whether or not to add the item to the Library’s collection.

What if I have more questions?
Please call the library at 530-865-1640 for more information.
