Jument: manimal2878: Are there places online where I can borrow any book I want for free?

Actually yes, there are, although for a subset of "any" (not that any library has "any" book either). My county library, for one. I can go onto the library website, which links me through to OverDrive, and borrow digital books for my Kindle (which are delivered through Amazon). It's really quite amazing, honestly. The selection is somewhat limited but still pretty wide IMHO.

For the past couple of years I've been a heavy user of our county library system but it's been >5 years since I've set foot in a B&M library branch.

Cool that is what I was wondering.

I always hear about the homeless stinking up most libraries, but we don't get many of those situations around here.

However, it does seem like all of ours have turned into Hispanic day care centers, complete with screaming/running kids in every section (upstairs and downstairs) in the last 5 years.
