Yes, there has been talk of this, but LeGuin gives the false impression it actually is implemented. If and when it is, I'm sure there will be an exception for people who have trouble walking.
With Adobe's DRM for ePub, it's actually not possible to force patrons to have to use a library computer to borrow eBooks. So that's not going to work.
But they can force Kindle users to have to trudge down to the library for eBooks.
