Our libraries here in the ACT you can even borrow ebooks.  The nice documentation says that they even delete themselves automatically from your computer to save you any nasty fines.  How very spiffing!

It's hard to use the library catalogue to find real paper books.  You do a search and all these audio and multimedia thingies come up.  I want an option that says: only show me real dead-tree type books.  Grrr....  The life of a pirate is just so difficult!
