The Modoc County Library has been selected by the California State Library to participate in a project called “Zip Books for Rural Libraries”. Only 30 libraries throughout the State of California are participating in this project which explores an alternative to traditional InterLibrary Loan (ILL) service. The 2013/2014 project will last through August 31, 2014. 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?

Adieu, Dear Friend.
By Cheryl Baker, Modoc County Librarian
Fay Stahl was the quintessential volunteer at the Modoc County Library for 30 years. Sadly, she passed away on September 15, 2013. Born on September 3, 1924, in Brooklyn, New York, she was the daughter of Jewish immigrant parents from Poland, who spoke very little English.
The following generous donors have contributed to keep the Cedarville branch library open two days per week through June 30, 2014:
Surprise Valley Rotary, Leah Larsen, Roger and Jan Farschon, Ed and Wendi Lutz, Don and Sue Haun, Warren Webb, and Jean Gorzell, plus other generous donors who wish to remain anonymous.
Thank you, one and all!
