Two New Ways to Get Books from the Woodland Public Library

The Woodland Public Library is pleased to announce that it now offers two new ways to get books:

Zip Books and LINK+. 

Your Library Delivered…..

Zip Books allows patrons to order books and audiobooks not currently owned by the library or partner libraries, and have the book shipped directly to their home, free of charge. In most cases the book is received within three to five days.

Patrons return the book to the library when they have finished it, and may then select another Zip Book. The book is returned to the front desk.

The Zip Books project is administered by NorthNet Library System, and is supported with California Library Services Act (CLSA) funds. Conditions and restrictions apply.

LINK+ gives you free access to millions of books from over 60 libraries!

Link+ (Link Plus) is a free interlibrary loan service that allows Woodland Public Library patrons to request books, audiobooks, CDs, DVDs, Blu-rays, and VHS from a cooperative network of over 60 Link+ member libraries throughout California and Nevada.

Library cardholders can request books or media not available at the Woodland Public Library and have them delivered to our library for pick-up.

  • Requested items usually arrive within 4 days and will be held for up to 10 days.
  • The loan period for books is 3 weeks with 1 renewal if there is no one waiting.
  • Renewals can be requested within 3 days of due date.
  • The loan period for media items varies from 1 week with no renewal to 3 weeks with one renewal, depending on the lending library. Most 1-week media lending libraries have “7-day check out, no renewal” stickers on the covers of their media, however to avoid unwanted fines, please pay extra attention to this detail.
  • Patrons may have 15 Link+ transactions at a time.

Library hours are 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 12 p.m.-4 p.m. Friday; 9 a.m. -4 p.m. Saturday; closed on Sunday. Square One (Makerspace) is open 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. Monday and Thursday; 3 p.m. -8 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday and 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Saturdays; closed on Sunday.

For more information, call the library 530-661-5980 or e-mail library@cityofwoodland.org
