EBook Libraries Don't Need To Be Local

I love having local libraries. They are a wonderful mind stimulus to walk through and just look at whatever kind of book attracts you.

But many libraries are struggling with having to fund buying both print books and ebooks, especially with the draconian methods many publishers are applying to ebook lending.

Ebooks can be downloaded from anywhere and don't have to come to a local library. So a person could live in Vancouver and join a library in Chicago or New York for downloads.

So instead of every regional library trying to buy ebooks, I was wondering if they should just just direct people to major libraries for ebook downloads and focus their budgets on print books.

Yes, there would be an added cost for people to join the second virtual library, but it would help the local library's budget.
