Likewise with the single login address although I somehow found it myself about three weeks ago.

Has anyone other than me been receiving hectoring emails from Z-lib saying that they are making it a closed system, and all access to it will be cut off at some point if you haven't donated to them?

No I want to donate but over the last 3 years I have complained that none of my credit cards - MBNA and VISA are on their list so I want to but cannot and they have no answer - anyone else have this problem?

I just received a similar email this morning threatening to cut me off if I don't donate. I have also tried to donate in the past but found it impossible because of the systems they use. I emailed them in the past about this but never received a reply. Looks like if I get cut off I get cut off.

I agree, I have money in a Skrill account that I put there a while back to buy a voucher from a recommended 3rd party company to donate but it just gets returned. I'll be cut off, whatever. I have hundreds of books I need to read, quite few of them nice hardbacks on bookshelves at home, it's just that sadly I'm a Kindle addict these days!

Anyway, it may just be an idle threat, to increase donations, not unheard of. :D

Be careful. A lot of them are scams sent by fake domain names imitating Z-library, trying to get people to send them money. I bin them instantly and still have access, though their domain does change often.

A couple of prominent scam websites:
z-lib.id
z-lib.io

Z-Lib's Telegram account is Z-Library Official, don't join any other. It's good to keep up with all their announcements including key feature improvements, working web addresses and scam websites.

They reached their Spring fundraising target.

I have been away for 2.5 weeks and on my return am having trouble downloading books from Zlib. The problem is that there's no button to initiate the download.

I'm using the following site - https://singlelogin.re/ which was working fine before I went away.

Am I missing something? Has the site moved to another address? Where's the download button gone?

I check out Anna's Archive this morning and downloaded one book but it's painfully slow.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Thanks for that.

Everything is working fine now by sending books to my email address and downloading from there.
